Ocean acidification and nutrient limitation synergistically reduce growth and photosynthetic performances of a green tide alga Ulva linza

Large-scale green tides have been invading the coastal zones of the western Yellow Sea annually since 2008. Meanwhile, oceans are becoming more acid due to continuous absorption of anthropogenic carbon dioxide and intensive seaweed cultivation in Chinese coastal areas is leading to severe regional nutrient limitation. However, little is known the combined effects of global […]
