• Centennial decline in North Sea water clarity causes strong delay in phytoplankton bloom timing 

      Opdal, Anders Frugård; Lindemann, Christian; Aksnes, Dag Lorents (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-08-23)
      With climate warming, a widespread expectation is that events in spring, such as flowering, bird migrations, and insect bursts, will occur earlier because of increasing temperature. At high latitudes, increased ocean ...
    • Scaling laws in phytoplankton nutrient uptake affinity 

      Lindemann, Christian; Fiksen, Øyvind; Andersen, Ken Haste; Aksnes, Dag Lorents (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-03-11)
      Nutrient uptake affinity affects the competitive ability of microbial organisms at low nutrient concentrations. From the theory of diffusion limitation it follows that uptake affinity scales linearly with the cell radius. ...
