Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 43)


We investigated the relationship between the photosynthesis-irradiance (P-I) curves of natural phytoplankton assemblages and environmental conditions in a partially mixed estuary, the Pas. During an annual cycle, primary production was measured both by in situ and laboratory (light-saturation curve) incubation methods.
