We examine the potential for nutrient limitation of algal periphyton biomass in blackwater streams draining the Georgia coastal plain. Previous studies have investigated nutrient limitation of planktonic algae in large blackwater rivers, but virtually no scientific information exists regarding how algal periphyton respond to nutrients under different light conditions in smaller, low-flow streams. We used a modification of the Matlock periphytometer (nutrient-diffusing substrata) to determine if… CONTINUE READING
