     In response to Hans Sluiman's inquiry about PFD sensors, my opinion is
     that the best would be to have the flat spectral response, which one
     can always correct later for the absorption properties of one's own
     critters.  Unlike higher plants that are fairly uniform in their
     absorption spectra, algae differ radically among taxa and also
     individual taxa exhibit much wider ranges of pigment acclimation
     (qualitative and quantitative) than higher plants, so a pre-corrected
     PFR sensor would be inappropriate and probably impossible.  Any
     dissenting opinions out there?
