Cellular inorganic carbon fluxes in Trichodesmium: a combined approach using measurements and modelling

To predict effects of climate change on phytoplankton, it is crucial to understand how their mechanisms for carbon acquisition respond to environmental conditions. Aiming to shed light on the responses of extra- and intracellular inorganic C (Ci) fluxes, the cyanobacterium… 217 more words


Optimising methodology for determining the effect of ocean acidification on bacterial extracellular enzymes

To fully understand the impact of ocean acidification on biogeochemical cycles, the response of bacterial extracellular enzymes needs to be considered as they play a central role in the degradation and distribution of labile organic matter. 244 more words


The formation of aggregates in coral reef waters under elevated concentrations of dissolved inorganic and organic carbon: A mesocosm approach

The transformation of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to particulate organic carbon is the major mechanism through which large sinking organic particles are formed in aquatic systems. 273 more words


Modeling the role of pH on Baltic Sea cyanobacteria

We simulate pH-dependent growth of cyanobacteria with an ecosystem model for the central Baltic Sea. Four model components—a life cycle model of cyanobacteria, a biogeochemical model, a carbonate chemistry model and a water column model—are coupled via the framework for aquatic biogeochemical models. 110 more words


The Cell

Cells are the smallest unit of life that can replicate independently, and are often called the “building blocks of life”. The study of cells is called cell biology. 871 more words
