Release of Dissolved Organic Nitrogen by Marine Diazotrophic Cyanobacteria, Trichodesmium spp.

Abstract

Trichodesmium sp. is a filamentous, colonial cyanobacterium which contributes substantially to the input of nitrogen in tropical and subtropical oceanic waters through nitrogen fixation (N(2) fixation). We applied a N tracer technique to assess the rate of release of dissolved organic nitrogen (DON) from this cyanobacterium and compared those rates with… (More)
