The role of nutrients in decomposition of a thecate dinoflagellate Tamar Zohary, Hans Güde, Utsa Pollingher, Bina Kaplan, Riki Pinkas, Ora Hadas Limnology and Oceanography, Volume 45, Issue 1, January 2000, Pages 123–130 DOI: 10.4319/lo.2000.45.1.0123 PDF Available. Because of the low N and P content of thecae (C:N:P atomic ratios >3000:19: 1) relative to protoplasts (276 :51:1), the microbial... Continue Reading →
Long-term effects of nutrient and CO2 enrichment on the temperate coral Astrangia poculata (Ellis and Solander, 1786) JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL MARINE BIOLOGY AND ECOLOGY, APRIL 2010 DOI: 10.1016/j.jembe.2010.02.007 PDF Available From the article abstract, minimally edited for clarity: Coral calcification rates[...]were not significantly affected by moderately elevated nutrients at ambient CO2 and were negatively affected...
