The increased frequency and extent of harmful algal blooms (HABs) has sparked the need for greater knowledge about the physical factors that control algal growth. Although primary producers require at least 20 different elements, the vast majority of what is known about nutrient limitation in aquatic ecosystems focuses on just two elements: N and P. Macronutrients (N and P) provide the fuel for algae but micronutrients (e.g., Fe, Mo, Zn) form the enzymatic engines that promote rapid and efficient growth…..
