AbstractThe effects of short-term, acute Cu exposure (6 h) on the adenylate energy charge (EC A) of open-ocean phytoplankton populations (northeastern equatorial Pacific) were investigated. Energy charge remained at ̃0.77 over the range of Cu additions (0.025 - 5.μg l -1), even though 14C uptake and total adenylate levels (ATP + ADP + AMP) were reduced by as much as 60%. These findings suggest that EC A alone is not a sensitive indicator of acute sublethal metal effects on phytoplankton. © 1983 IRL Press Ltd.
