During January 1999, studies were carried out in temperate lakes of the Andean region of Argentina (41degreesS, 71degreesW) to determine the short-term effects of solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR, 280-400 nm) upon natural phytoplankton assemblages. Organisms from one 'clear' (Lake Moreno) and two 'opaque' lakes (Morenito and El Trebol) were exposed to different radiation regimes to assess photosynthesis inhibition and cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs) accumulation/repair. UV-B caused… CONTINUE READING
