Previous investigations suggested that buoyancy state in response to light differed between individuals within natural populations of cyanobacteria. To understand the mechanisms of heterogeneity of buoyancy in different species/strains in relation to light, two types of colonial Microcystis in different buoyancy behavior were selected and used to compare their photosynthetic activity, gas vesicle volume, ballast mass, and migration at varying light regime. The photosynthesis–irradiance curve… CONTINUE READING
