The general aim is to study the relationship between marine phytoplankton and light environment. This relationship is established mainly through pigments that are present in marine photosynthetic organisms forming part of groups with a large variety of molecular structures (photosynthetic systems). It has decided to characterise chlorophyll molecules and carotenoids that make up pigmentary systems and to relate the synthesis and/or interconversion among pigments with processes that involve the action of light (light harvesting, photoprotection, photoacclimatisation, photoadaptation). They also aim to establish its distribution in the different taxonomic categories of microalgae and cyanobacteria and investigate the distribution of planktonic organisms’ populations in natural waters by means of the development and application of pigment analysis methods.
