The growth of K. brevis under different nutrient treatments. Growth of K. brevis cultures under f/2, 883 μM NO3, and N-deplete, 10 μM NO3, conditions and their response to 155 μM NO3 addition during stationary phase (day 9) (A). Growth of K. brevis cultures under f/2, 36 μM PO4, and P-deplete, 0.1 μM PO4, conditions and their response to 168 μM PO4 addition during stationary phase (day 12) (B). Data are mean ± S.E.M. of cell concentrations in 6 replicate cultures prior to N- or P-addition and 3 replicate cultures post-addition (where 3 of 6 cultures received nutrient addition, 3 remained untreated).
