    Nature 425:504-7. 2003
    ..Our results also explain why Trichodesmium is not successful in temperate or cold seas. The absence of heterocystous cyanobacteria in the pelagic zone of temperate and cold seas, however, requires another explanation...

    Environ Microbiol 9:727-36. 2007
    ..The results showed that under aerobic conditions nitrogenase activity was limited by the availability of reducing equivalents suggesting a competition for electrons between nitrogenase and respiration...

    Appl Environ Microbiol 68:4679-83. 2002
    ..It was possible to convert the process parameters between the four models and compare N(2) fixation with photosynthesis. The physiological meanings of the process parameters are discussed and compared to those of photosynthesis...

    Centre for Estuarine and Marine Ecology, Netherlands Institute of Ecology, KNAW, Yerseke, The Netherlands
    Appl Environ Microbiol 72:3217-27. 2006
    ..The lowest C/N ratios were obtained when the light regime closely matched nitrogenase dynamics...

    Guus Roeselers
    Department of Biotechnology, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands
