"Oceans cover three-quarters of the Earth's surface, but many parts of the deep oceans have yet to be explored. Learn about the large-scale ocean circulation patterns that help to regulate temperatures and weather patterns on land, and the microscopic marine organisms that form the base of marine food webs."--Annenberg website
Iron limits the cell division rate of Prochlorococcus in the eastern equatorial Pacific by Elizabeth Lowell Mann ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Prochlorococcus, a small unicellular cyanobacterium, is an important member of the phytoplankton community in the eastern equatorial Pacific. When these waters were enriched with iron during IronEx II, the chlorophyll per cell and cell size of Prochlorococcus increased, implying that they were iron limited. The extent of this limitation was unclear, however, and the number of Prochlorococcus remained constant. To examine whether cell division rates were stimulated significantly by iron, we used a cell cycle analysis approach to measure them in and out of the Fe-enriched patch and in Fe-enriched bottles. The cell division rate increased from 0.6 to 1.1 d-1 over 6 d of exposure to the elevated iron concentrations in the patch. Cells incubated in bottles with additional iron had rates of 1.4 d-1 or two doublings per day. Prochlorococcus mortality rates, measured independently, nearly doubled after the addition of iron. This matched the increase in the cell division rate and maintained a relatively constant population size. Thus the cell division rates of even the smallest phytoplankton in the equatorial Pacific are significantly iron limited, but biomass is constrained by both iron limitation and microzooplankton grazing. The differential response of individual phytoplankton groups to the addition of iron during IronEx II was at least partially a result of differential mortality rates over the time course of the experiment. How the community would respond to sustained fertilization, however, is not obvious

Limnology and Oceanography, Volume 36, Number 8, December 1991. What Controls Phytoplankton Production in Nutrient-Rich Areas of the Open Sea? ( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In certain areas of the oceans (the Southern Ocean, subarctic Pacific, and equatorial Pacific), phytoplankton do not exhaust phosphate and nitrate in the surface waters. The result is a less efficient transfer of carbon from surface to deep waters via the biological pump. This high-nutrient, low-chlorophyl (HNLC) paradox has intrigued biological oceanographers for years. Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain the maintenance of phytoplankton biomass below the carrying capacity set by the availability of major nutrients, including: zooplankton grazing; inhibition of nitrate uptake by ammonium concentrations; light and temperature limitation; trace metal limitation or inhibition; ana physiological inefficiency. As is usually true of issues involving marine food webs, no single hypothesis has emerged to account for all the properties of HNLC regions. Because of scientific interest in the recent data from John Martin's group indicating that iron limitation might be responsible for the HNLC paradox, and due to interest by the media and policy makers in the question of whether large-scale iron fertilization could mitigate the buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, a symposium was held by the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography on the topic of What Controls Phytoplankton Production in Nutrient-Rich Areas of the Open Sea? Under this grant, papers resulting from the Symposium were published in the December, 1991 issue of Limnology and Oceanography (Volume 36, 8)
Understanding Vertical Mixing and Photoacclimation Processes in the Surface Oceans Using Single Cell Analysis ( )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Vertical mixing in the surface layer of the ocean will affect phytoplankton growth by changing the light field to which cells are exposed. Conversely, indicators of phytoplankton photoacclimation should be diagnostic of mixing processes. A combination of laboratory and field experimental work, field observations, and theoretical models were used to quantify the relationship between vertical mixing and photoacclimation in determining the time and space evolution of single cell optical properties for the photosynthetic picoplankton, Prochiorococcus spp. Diel time-series observations from the Sargasso Sea revealed patterns in single-cell fluorescence distributions within Prochiorococcus spp. populations which correspond to decreasing mixing rates and photoacclimation during the day, and increased mixing at night. Reciprocal light shift experiments were used to quantify the photoacclimation kinetics for Prochicrococcus spp. fluorescence. In addition, a continuous culture system was developed which could simulate the effects of mixing across a light gradient at the level of the individual cell. When this system was operated at four different simulated diffusivities, Prochiorococcus marinus strain Med4 fluorescence distributions showed distinct patterns in the mean and higher moments which are consistent with a simple quasi-steady turbulent diffusion-photoacclimation model. Daytime photoacclimation drove the development of a gradient in mean fluorescence, a decrease in variance overall, and skewing of distributions away from the boundaries. These results suggest that picophytoplankton single-cell fluorescence distributions could prove to be a useful diagnostic indicator of the mixing environment
