Overcoming adversity through diversity: aquatic carbon concentrating mechanisms

Abstract:

Carbon concentrating mechanism (CCM) systems, associated with evolutionarily diverse aquatic photosynthetic organisms, make a major contribution to global net primary productivity and marine carbon sequestration. Here, an overview of these global contributions is presented from their evolutionary origins, including a possible trigger for their diversification when the aqueous O2/CO2 ratio rose above parity, and a re-definition of the paradox of phytoplankton. The reviews and research in the s...
