Correction to: Nature Microbiology https://doi.org/10.1038/s41564-018-0119-5, published online 26 February 2018.
In the version of this Letter originally published, the Methods incorrectly stated that all phytoplankton cultures were sampled in mid-exponential phase. The low-nitrogen cultures were sampled in early stationary phase and at the point at which Fv/Fm values decreased, to indicate that cultures were experiencing low-nitrogen conditions. All other phytoplankton cultures were sampled in exponential phase. Growth and Fv/Fm data are provided here on high- and low-nitrogen cultures (Figs. 1, 2 and 3) to clarify and support this correction. The Methods also stated that cell counting was done using a Beckman Multisizer 3 Coulter Counter, but a CASY Model TT Cell Counter was used.
In addition, in Supplementary Fig. 2e,f, the x-axis tick-mark label “High salinity (50 PSU)” should have read “High salinity (70 PSU)” in both panels.
The authors apologize for any confusion they may have caused, and acknowledge T. Mock and J. Strauss for raising these discrepancies. The errors have now been corrected.
