Our team’s new paper shows that phytoplankton (“algae”) communities north and south of the Polar Front (located approximately at around 50 degrees South) respond differently to changes in light and availability of micronutrient iron. Those factors are important for the photosynthesis and thus growth of the algae, which eventually, is important for the food web to develop in the ocean as well as the photosynthetic uptake of CO2. Raissa, Natasha and Johan were all central to the success of this paper, but in the end, science depends on great team work. Congratulations and thank you, team!
