Autoradiography, Primary productivity (Biology) -- Measurement, Phytoplankton
1 online resource (41 p.)
Methods of measuring primary productivity are discussed in terms of what information they provide concerning energy flow in the phytoplankton community. A track autoradiographic technique is presented which measures species-specific phytoplankton productivity and its use is demonstrated under laboratory conditions. Controls and standardized processing conditions are established which permit the use of the track technique in quantitative evaluations of primary productivity.
