The element molybdenum (Mo) is another micronutrient that can limit primary production in the oceans. If the researchers found the following results for additions of Mo, what would you conclude about its relative importance for growth?
We can define a limiting nutrient as an element that is necessary in order to increase production.
In photic zones, the concentration of these nutrients is particularly low because they are quickly taken up by phytoplankton. Moreover, detritus tend to sink, thus, concentration in the upper zone is lower.
