Variability in phytoplankton pigment biomass and taxonomic composition over tidal cycles in a salt marsh estuary
Tidal flow causes high temporal variability in environmental properties that impact ecosystem dynamics. Microbes such as phytoplankton are especially susceptible to tidal advection and mixing, and understanding their role ...
Response of bacteria to simulated upwelling phytoplankton blooms
Until recently, studies of the fate of primary production in coastal upwelling systems have focused mainly on export through sinking of particulate organic matter (POM). In week-long deck incubations conducted during the ...
Effects of Nitrogen Availability and Form on Phytoplankton Growth in a Eutrophied Estuary (Neuse River Estuary, NC, USA)
(PLoS ONE, 2016-08-09)
Nitrogen availability and form are important controls on estuarine phytoplankton growth. This study experimentally determined the influence of urea and nitrate additions on phytoplankton growth throughout the growing season ...
Light-induced growth of phytoplankton collected during the winter from the benthic boundary layer off Oregon, USA
Despite the importance of the spring phytoplankton bloom off Oregon as a food source for zooplankton, little is known about the sources of phytoplankton seed stock for the bloom or its timing. Experiments were conducted ...
