Cyanobacteria N2 fixation responses to pCO2 using four Trichodesmium isolates representing three species and three Crocosphaera watsonii strains, isolated from locations across the North and South Pacific and Atlantic Oceans (Webb et al. 2009, Hynes et al. 2012) and spanning the taxonomic diversity within each genus.

Detailed methods and results will be available in the following publication (see Figures 1 and 2):
