Laboratory experiments were conducted with field populations of Cladophora glomerata to examine the phosphorus uptake process. Results from 35 experiments conducted over two field seasons emphasize the importance of two factors in regulating phosphorus uptake: dissolved phosphorus concentration and internal phosphorus pool size. The phosphorus uptake rate increases as dissolved phosphorus availability increases. Negative feedback on uptake rate by internal phosphorus pool size reduces the maximum phosphorus uptake rate as internal pools approach saturation. The absolute maximum phosphorus uptake rate for Cladophora was 4.5%P/day. (Copyright (c) Internat. Assoc. Great Lakes Res., 1982.)
