Note(s): Silicon uptake kinetics of the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum (Bohlin) were examined at pH 8.8 ± 0.1 and pH 9.1 ± 0.1. Uptake follows hyperbolic saturation kinetics at both pH's, but at the higher pH the half-saturation constant for uptake is 11.8 μM, as opposed to 54.8 μM at the lower pH. When the uptake rate is examined as a function of the calculated concentration of the monovalent conjugate base, SiO(OH)3−, the half-saturation constant for uptake is 6.6 μM at either pH.This manuscript is an author version with the final publication available at http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/ and may be cited as: Riedel, G.
