To assist in formulating a model of seagrass growth, the photosynthesis-irradiance (P-I) relationships of Posidonia sinuosa, Posidonia australis, Amphibolis griffithii and Amphibolis antarctica were determined by oxygen flux measurements at a range of light intensities and water temperatures. Net and gross photosynthesis and respiration rates generally increased in response to increasing temperature within the range 13–23°C and the observed trends suggest that the optimum temperature range for… CONTINUE READING
