Specific growth rate of Synechococcus in the equatorial Atlantic Ocean

Value 0.7 1/day
Organism Cyanobacteria Synechococcus spp.
Reference MV Zubkov, Faster growth of the major prokaryotic versus eukaryotic CO2 fixers in the oligotrophic ocean. Nature Communications 5:3776 (2014) doi:10.1038/ncomms4776 p.3 left column bottom paragraphPubMed ID24777140
Method 14C
Comments p.3 left column bottom paragraph: "The region-averaged growth rates of the studied groups ranged between 0.1 and 0.6/day (Fig. 1). The Syn grew fastest in the EQ regions, 0.7/day, however, these data were omitted from the figure as unrepresentative for the combined EQ+SG regions, because Syn growth was not determined in the SG region owing to their low cell concentrations (Supplementary Fig. 1b)."
