There are five species/strains of phytoplankton: Pseudo-nitzschia subcurvata LN, Pseudo-nitzschia subcurvata HN, Chaetoceros sp. LN, Fragilariopsis cylindrus HN, and Phaeocystis antarctica HN. The physiological response of these five species/strains to four treatments was investigated: 0°C-Fe limited (1nM),  0°C-Fe replete (500nM),  4°C-Fe limited (1nM),  4°C-Fe replete (500nM).

We report: carbon fixation rates, Fe uptake rates, Fe uptake rates to carbon fixation rates ratio; carbon quota, nitrogen quota, phosphorus quota, and silicate quota; cell volume, cell surface area to cell volume ratios; carbon quota to Chl a ratio, Chl a per cell; and Fv/Fm of Pseudo-nitzschia subcurvata LN and Chaetoceros sp. LN .
