8th European Phycological Congress

After Zagreb in 2019, we are pleased to invite you to Brest (Brittany, France) for the 8th European Phycological Congress “Scientific Opportunities for a Global Algal Revolution” on behalf of the Federation of European Phycological Societies council and the French Phycological Society. France has a long and proud tradition of phycological research and has a […]


Context Understanding the functioning of marine ecosystems relies on the study of large-scale (e.g. climate), (sub-)mesoscale (e.g. ocean dynamics), and local (e.g. microenvironment) forcings as well as on the study of natural and anthropogenic environmental variations (e.g. temperature, pH, salinity, light, nutrients, oxygenation, pollutants…). Understanding the effects of these forcings at different levels of integration […]


PPP, February 2022 update

Four campaigns have already been carried out using a double neuston net with a mesh size of […]

Influence of strong iron-binding ligands on cloud water oxidant capacity

Abstract Iron (Fe) plays a dual role in atmospheric chemistry: it is involved in chemical and photochemical reactivity and serves as a micronutrient for microorganisms that have recently been shown to produce strong organic ligands. These ligands control the reactivity, mobility, solubility and speciation of Fe, which have a potential impact on Fe bioavailability and […]
