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 rates of N(2) fixation determined for the same assemblages at the same times of day. Rates of release of DON showed considerable variation… CONTINUE READING
