    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Anna Osterman; [2023]
    Keywords : Iron; Humic substances; Dissolved organic carbon; Baltic Sea; Rivers;

    Abstract : In marine ecosystems around the world, iron (Fe) is a well-studied and important trace element which has been found to stimulate phytoplankton and cyanobacteria growth, as well as limit nitrogen fixation and being essential for Legionella pneumophila which is known as the main cause of Legionnaires’ disease.
