Is nitrate a driver for pigments of phytoplankton (a case study from a small shallow European lake)?

Alexandra L. Rizhinashvili and Olga B. Maksimova

We found that the phytoplankton's carotenoids in a small shallow lake correlate with nitrate-nitrogen. We also show that primary production and the nitrate content can be in stoichiometric relation. The results of the present study provide some materials on nitrogen limitation of freshwater aquatic systems.
