The physiology of Phymatolithon foecundum from Cape Evans
Entry ID: K082_2001_2002_NZ_4

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Phymatolithon foecundum is a coralline growth found in the coastal benthic environment. Benthic surveys indicated that P. foecundum is abundant throughout the deep gradients (10-30m depth). A range of approaches were taken to determine the light vs photosynthesis characteristics of this growth form including both in situ and laboratory experiments. A diving-PAM fluorometer to log photosynthetic ... View entire text
