Past and future adaptations of phytoplankton to carbon dioxide

Abstract:

Photosynthesis is responsible for fixing approximately 111 – 117 Pg of CO₂ into organic carbon each year, of which about half is performed by algae in the oceans. Over geological timescales, photosynthesis by algae was instrumental in transforming Earth’s atmosphere. Despite the integral role algae play in the carbon cycle, the interaction and feedbacks between CO₂ fixation by algae and atmospheric CO₂ is poorly understood. This thesis expands upon our current knowledge by tracing the evoluti...
