Ostreococcus, the smallest known marine picoeukaryote, includes lowand high-light ecotypes. To determine the basis for niche partitioning between Ostreococcus sp. RCC809, isolated from the bottom of the tropical Atlantic euphotic zone, and the lagoon strain Ostreococcus tauri, we studied their photophysiologies under growth irradiances from 15 mmol photons m22 s21 to 800 mmol photons m22 s21 with a common nutrient replete regime. With increasing growth irradiance, both strains down-regulated… CONTINUE READING
