Whether it be in terrestrial or aquatic environments, primary production, the base of the food web, relates to the production of organic compounds from inorganic carbon and water through the process of photosynthesis. In aquatic systems, investigators are concerned with community composition and dynamics of primary producer communities, the green algae and higher aquatic plants that through the process of photosynthesis form sugar from light energy and carbon dioxide plus water.
