Modeling the metabolic evolution of mixotrophic phytoplankton in response to rising ocean surface temperatures

Logan M. Gonzalez, Stephen R. Proulx & Holly V. Moeller
Abstract Background Climate change is expected to lead to warming in ocean surface temperatures which will have unequal effects on the rates of photosynthesis and heterotrophy. As a result of this changing metabolic landscape, directional phenotypic evolution will occur, with implications that cascade up to the ecosystem level. While mixotrophic phytoplankton, organisms that combine photosynthesis and heterotrophy to meet their energetic and nutritional needs, are expected to become more heterotrophic with warmer temperatures due to...
