This paper examines the growth and uptake of phosphorus into algal biofilms in the River Kennet, a lowland chalk (Cretaceous-age) stream in southern England. Algal biofilms were grown on artificial plastic substrates (templates) placed (i) on the riverbed and (ii) within the mid-water column. Experiments were set up to examine differences in growth rates of newly colonising biofilms compared with biofilms left to accumulate for periods of up to 6 months. Rates of algal biofilm production were… CONTINUE READING
