Biology trumps chemistry in open ocean: How phytoplankton assimilate limited concentrations of phosphorus

Biology trumps chemistry in open ocean: How phytoplankton assimilate limited concentrations of phosphorus | Seahorse Project | Scoop.it
Scientists laid out a new framework based on in situ observations that will allow them to describe and understand how phytoplankton assimilate limited concentrations of phosphorus, a key nutrient, in the ocean in ways that better reflect what is actually occurring in the marine environment. This is important because nutrient uptake is a property of ocean biogeochemistry, and in many regions controls carbon dioxide fixation, which ultimately can play a role in mitigating climate change.
