Silicification in Coastal Diatom Communities
Colleen A. Durkin and co-authors published a new study on diatom silicification. The authors used in situ incubation experiments, along with laboratory culturing experiments, to demonstrate that variation in silicic acid supply alters the silicification of coastal diatom blooms and diatom sinking rates.
