Responses of filamentous cyanobacteria to natural and anthropogenic changes in the Baltic Sea

Universität Rostock, 2013

Abstract: The studies concentrated on 2 diazotrophic cyanobacteria species, Nodularia spumigena and Aphanizomenon sp.. The dissertation includes diurnal observations, laboratory and field studies. The experiments aimed to observe variations concerning day/night rhythms and anthropogenic induced changes of pCO2 levels. I showed 2 to 4 fold diurnal variations within DIC, N2, DIP incorporations, related to daytime and bloom development. Further I showed stimulated C and N2 fixation rates with increasing pCO2 at sufficient DIP concentrations. Reduced or depleted DIP concentrations debate this effect.
