Phytoplankton community structure, photophysiology and primary production in the Atlantic Arctic

Abstract:

The Arctic is a region undergoing unprecedented and unequivocal climate change. The seas of this extreme region form a major component of the oceanic thermohaline conveyor and natural carbon cycle. Using a combination of recent and historical datasets this study examines the distribution, diversity, photophysiology and primary productivity of phytoplankton in the Atlantic sector of the Arctic Ocean. CHEMTAX analysis reveals a diverse phytoplankton community structure in the Greenland Sea c...
