2 Trichodesmium cultures grown under different CO 2 and temperatures Hutchins et al. (2007) Meta analysis (Findlay et al. 2011) on E. huxleyi cultures shows that after pCO 2 and TA, P concentration controls PIC:POC response

3 StudyPIC:POCGrowth rateDaylength Iglesias-Rodriguez et al. (2008) ↑↓ 12h Unpub. data, Bretherton ↔↓ 14h Hoppe et al. (2011) ↓↔ 18h Shi et al. (2009) ↓↔ 24h

5 Fv/Fm decreases slightly in continuous light cultures – stress?

6 14h daylight period: calcification maintained, but at the cost of growth rate 24h daylight period: no change in growth rate, but cultures produce excess coccolithes

12 L:D cycle is an important consideration for OA experiments Discrepencies in OA response can be explained by L:D cycle Local changes in L:D cycles in nature as climate changes
