Photokinetic adaptation of sea-ice algae
Entry ID: ASAC_2702

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2702
See the link below for public details on this project.

Sea-ice algae are the basis of the Antarctic food web and are essential for healthy functioning of the Antarctic ecosystem. These algae exploit a unique niche within this extreme environment. Using advanced photosynthetic analysis we will examine the mechanisms which influence the productivity ... View entire text

FLUOROMETERS Ancillary Description
Quality Taken from the 2005-2006 Progress Report:

This objective will be met by addressing the following questions:
1) How does light and temperature stress interact in relation with the photosynthesis of sea-ice algae?
- Do all species partition photon energy in a similar way between photochemical quenching (qP) and non-photochemical quenching (qN) when exposed to light and ... View entire text
