Increasing amounts of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are expected to enter the aquatic ecosystems where their effects on natural phytoplankton communities are poorly understood. We investigated the effects of AgNPs and its interactions with phosphorus (P) supply on the growth kinetics and stoichiometry of natural phytoplankton. Lake water was dosed with AgNPs (carboxy-functionalized capping agent; ∼10-nm particle size; ∼20% Ag w/w) at four different concentrations and five P concentrations and… CONTINUE READING
