A dataset containing example data of rates of photosynthesis and respiration of the phytoplankton Chlorella vulgaris. Instantaneous rates of metabolism were made across a range of assay temperatures to incorporate the entire thermal response of the populations. The dataset is the cleaned version so some datapoints have been omitted.
A data frame with 649 rows and 7 variables:
a unique value for each separate curve
the growth temperature that the culture was maintained at before measurements were taken (degrees centigrade)
whether the cultures had been kept for a long time at their growth temperature (adaptation/~100 generations) or a short time (a measure of acclimation/~10 generations)
whether the curve depicts respiration or gross photosynthesis
the assay temperature at which the metabolic rate was measured (degrees centigrade)
the assay temperature in degrees Kelvin
the metabolic rate measured (micro mol O2 micro gram C-1 hr-1)
