The photosynthesis‐irradiance response (PE) curve, in which mass‐specific photosynthetic rates are plotted versus irradiance, is commonly used to characterize photoacclimation. The interpretation of PE curves depends critically on the currency in which mass is expressed. Normalizing the light‐limited rate to chl a yields the chl a‐specific initial slope (αchl). This is proportional to the light absorption coefficient (achl), the proportionality factor being the photon efficiency of… 
Phytoplankton photoacclimation and photoadaptation in response to environmental gradients in a shelf sea
Variability in the photosynthetic performance of natural phytoplankton communities, due to both taxonomic composition and the physiological acclimation of these taxa to environmental conditions, was
Changes in the Rubisco to photosystem ratio dominates photoacclimation across phytoplankton taxa
TLDR
A ~700 % increase in the Rubisco:photosystem ratio across species with increasing growth irradiance indicates this is a key cellular stoichiometric adjustment to balance photon absorption capacity and the carbon reduction capacity.
Relationships between pigment ratios and growth irradiance in 11 marine phytoplankton species
TLDR
Light-dependent variation in pigment content was examined in 11 marine phytoplank- ton species representing 8 algal classes, finding that pigment ratios normalised to chlorophyll a (chl a) generally fell within the ranges previously reported for species of the same taxa.
Effects of light intensity and temperature on the photosynthetic irradiance response curves and chlorophyll fluorescence in three picocyanobacterial strains of Synechococcus
Chrococcoid cyanobacteria of the genus Synechococcus are the important component of marine and freshwater ecosystems. Picocyanobacteria comprise even 80% of total cyanobacterial biomass and
Effects of light intensity and temperature on the photosynthetic irradiance response curves and chlorophyll fluorescence in three picocyanobacterial strains of Synechococcus
TLDR
Based on P-I, two mechanisms of photoacclimation were recognized in Synechococcus and high irradiance had a negative effect on fluorescence parameters, such as the maximum quantum yield and effective quantum yield of PSII photochemistry, but it was higher in case of φPSII.
An optimality model of photoadaptation in contrasting aquatic light regimes
TLDR
The model was used to explain variability of the photosynthesis-irradiance response of samples from the Celtic and Irish Seas and showed limited range of chlorophyll was consistent with optimization of resource allocation to light-harvesting components in dynamic environments.
Chlorophyll to Carbon Ratio Derived From a Global Ecosystem Model With Photodamage
Phytoplankton harvests light by integrating chlorophyll in protein‐pigment complexes (photosystems) that are variable in number and size. In ecosystem models, the capacity of light harvesting is
Growth, Chl a content, photosynthesis, and elemental composition in polar and temperate microalgae
TLDR
Polar microalgae have low light-saturated growth rates (μm) and very low light saturation parameters for growth (KE) but similar initial slopes of their growth–irradiance curve (αµ = μm/KE) and have lower C : N ratios than their temperate cousins, which may be related to a much higher protein content.

TLDR
It would appear that use of a single value of θ for phytoplankton is inappropriate for ecological studies and the available data indicate that θ is about three times larger in dinoflagellates than in other algae under comparable PFDs at 20 °C.
