Abstract

The purpose of a nutrient enrichment study is to determine the actual or incipient limitation of phytoplankton by specific nutrients. The literature on nutrient enrichment contains a wide variety of experimental designs and methods for such studies. This variation in methodology is in part explained by differences in the exact purpose of the studies. In general, nutrient enrichment studies can involve enrichment of standard algal cultures, or enrichment of natural assemblages over a few hours, a few days, or many days.
