Isalger blomstrer i mørket

Forskere fra Aarhus Universitet har målt en ny verdensrekord: Små isalger på undersiden af den arktiske havis lever og vokser ved en lysmængde, der svarer til kun 0.02% af lyset ved overfladen af isen. Algerne er første led i den arktisk fødekæde og producerer dermed føde langt tidligere på året end hidtil antaget.
