While intensified nutrient limitation of periphyton has been reported along wetland nutrientdepletion gradients, changes to the specific nutrient that limits periphyton growth are not documented. In this study, we used artificial nutrient-diffusing substrata to determine nutrient limitation status of periphyton along a nitrogen- and phosphorus-depletion gradient in a freshwater marsh during the growing season of 2003. We also characterized water-column nutrient content, N:P ratio of dissolved… CONTINUE READING
