Effects of inorganic phosphorus and nitrogen on the growth of an estuarine cladophora in culture
Gordon, D.M., Birch, P.B. and McComb, A.J. (1981) Effects of inorganic phosphorus and nitrogen on the growth of an estuarine cladophora in culture. Botanica Marina, 24 . pp. 93-106.
Response of Cladophora to different P and N regimes under otherwise non-limiting conditions in cultures of artificial seawater suggests that growth rates would be limited in the field by P and N concentrations in the water column above the algae, but not in the algal bed. Treatment with P over the range 0 to 0.25 mg l super(-1) (with 5.0 mg l super(-1) N) and N over the range 0 to 5.0 mg l super(-1) (with 0.5 mg l super(-1) P) produced yields proportional to increasing concentrations.
