Abstract The maximum final pHs reached during extended photosynthesis were 8.83 for the red algae Delesseria sanguinea and 10.19 for the brown algae Fucus vesiculosus, as long as the concentrations of exceeded 1 mmol l−1, suggesting the existence of an upper pH limit for macroalgal photosynthesis. In experiments initiated with low concentrations of inorganic carbon, the final pH decreased with reduced initial pH, indicating that inorganic carbon became limiting. Effects of high O2… CONTINUE READING
