Characterisation of marine zooplankton alkaline phosphatase activity in relation to the water quality

In this study, we measured the non-specific zooplanktonic phosphate activity inside and outside Toulon bay. These activities were compared in relation to substrate and phosphate concentrations, pH and sea water composition. Great differences were observed between the two sites. Phosphatase activities were higher inside Toulon bay, where high zooplankton… CONTINUE READING
