  • 2018-02-08
  • Periphyton productivity was measured annually at FCE LTER sites in Florida Bay and Shark Slough using light and dark BOD bottle incubations. Data are presented in terms of mass oxygen and/or carbon produced/consumed per gram of periphyton and per m2 of marsh. This is part of continuous data collection to test the hypothesis that phosphorus and nitrogen limit productivity at the upstream and downstream ends, respectively, of the FCE transects. Conclusions await longer-term data collection.
