Effects of future climate conditions on photosynthesis and biochemical component of Ulva pertusa (Chlorophyta)

Ulva pertusa, a common bloom-forming green alga, was used as a model system to examine the effects of elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) and temperature on growth and photosynthetic performance. To do this, U. pertusa was grown under four temperature and CO2 conditions; ambient CO2 (400 ?atm) and temperature (16°C) (i.e., present), elevated temperature only (19°C) […]
