  • a —, no data were available for the comparisons between sunlit and dark microcosms at 0 h because the microcosms had not yet been exposed to the sunlight treatment. −biota, absence of biota; +biota, presence of biota; LF, light filtered; DF, dark filtered; LU, light unfiltered; DU, dark unfiltered.
