Title: Carbon isotope fractionation by marine phytoplankton in culture: The effects of CO[sub 2] concentration, pH, temperature, and species

Abstract

Carbon isotopes are fractionated during many biological and geological processes and often one can infer the nature of the conditions and processes by looking at the isotopic ratios. This study investigates how dissolved carbon dioxide concentrations, temperature, pH, and phytoplankton species affect the fractionation of carbon isotopes during the growth of marine phytoplankton using single species cultures. 49 refs., 4 figs., 2 tabs.
