Ocean warming enhances respiration and carbon demand of coastal microbial plankton

  title={Ocean warming enhances respiration and carbon demand of coastal microbial plankton},
  • Published 2007
The increase of anthropogenic CO2 during this century is expected to cause warming of large regions of the ocean. Microbes lead the biological role in the CO2 balance of marine ecosystems, their activity is known to be influenced by temperature, and it is important to constrain and quantify these effects on bacterial carbon use. Furthermore, if warming were to enhance the carbon demand (production 1 respiration) of planktonic microbes but would maintain their efficiency low (as it generally is… CONTINUE READING
