Climate-driven changes in the ecological stoichiometry of aquatic ecosystems

ESA Online Journals – Climate-driven changes in the ecological stoichiometry of aquatic ecosystems.

Here’s a nice piece in Frontiers of Ecology and the Environment by Dedmer van de Waal and other Dutch colleagues about how various aspects of climate change might impinge on oceans and lakes via stoichiometric mechanisms.  It’s a product of a nice workshop in Amsterdam that I attended last year.  Among other things, it highlights the study I joined Jotaro Urabe on that examined on pCO2 affects algal stoichiometry and Daphnia growth.  It also highlights some important experiments examining how elevated CO2 affects the C:N:P stoichiometry of production in the marine environment.

Have a look!
