By O. Holm-Hansen, L. Bolis, R. Gilles

Whilst i used to be requested to arrange this symposium on marine producti­ vity, it made me ponder what points of this topic will be stimulating to a heterogeneous team of laboratory-oriented physiolo­ gists and biochemists. in recent times there were a number of books which discusses the technique accepted in fundamental creation reviews and defined the value of photosynthetic CO relief 2 in a number of components of the world's oceans. I consequently made up our minds to dis­ pense with those traditional elements of fundamental construction and invite researchers to talk on numerous difficulties pertaining to the abundance and task of phytoplankton to environmental stipulations. The lectures I invited have been therefore rather different in personality, yet all have been comparable both to components affecting the speed of photosynthesis or to the destiny of diminished carbon because it passes in the course of the microbial nutrients internet. as well as those talks the members benefited from a few shorter displays and poster classes which handled creation and biking of natural carbon within the marine surroundings.
