New Article: Sargassum fusiforme(ヒジキの光合成に関する論文)

Our lab's new paper was published from Phycologia!

We have reported the photosynthetic characteristics of an intertidal brown alga, Sargassum fusiforme, based on the in vitro and in situ measurements. Indeed, it was quite hard work SCUBA diving from before sunrise and through the sunset, but the data we collected were absolutely great. From the figures in our article, you can clearly see the characteristic decline of the effective quantum yield during the day and under strong irradiance.
