Paths of Carbon Assimilation in Marine Phytoplankton

Abstract

In 1952, Steemann Nielsen (1) introduced the ‘C-14 technique’ for measuring primary productivity in aquatic systems. The extent to which the technique has been used over the past 28 years bears testimony to its importance. In a real sense, use of the radioisotope provided a very sensitive and convenient method of measuring the rate at which photosynthetic cells, floating in an illuminated layer of water, convert inorganic carbon to cell material.
