An 18-day mesocosm study was performed in central Norway to assess the effect of enhanced nutrient input to the marine plankton community. This paper reports the responses of micro- and mesozooplankton to increased food supply due to elevated nutrient input. Seven mesocosms (M1–M7) were added variable doses of N, ranging from 0 to 2.19 μm N l−1 d−1. Phosphorus and silicate was added in Redfield ratios. The ciliate community responded rapidly to the treatment, and reached maximum biomass of 88… CONTINUE READING
