We studied the effect of ecologically relevant ammonium concentrations and light on several morphological and physiological properties, nitrogen metabolism and carbon reserves of eelgrass Zostera marina L. Eelgrass was grown under mesocosm conditions at 3 levels of ammonium enrichment (target concentrations of 0, 10 and 25 μM) and 2 levels of light (low and high light). High ammonium supply combined with low light had a negative effect on several morphological and physiological response… CONTINUE READING
