Interactive effects of light and nutrients on phytoplankton stoichiometry

  title={Interactive effects of light and nutrients on phytoplankton stoichiometry},
  author={Elizabeth M. Dickman and Michael J. Vanni and Martin J. Horgan},
The stoichiometric composition of autotrophs can vary greatly in response to variation in light and nutrient availability, and can mediate ecological processes such as C sequestration, growth of herbivores, and nutrient cycling. We investigated light and nutrient effects on phytoplankton stoichiometry, employing five experiments on intact phytoplankton assemblages from three lakes varying in productivity and species composition. Each experiment employed two nutrient and eight irradiance levels… CONTINUE READING
