Title: Taxonomy and spatial distribution of phytoplankton in the south Adriatic ; winter aspect
Source: Book of abstracts of the 12th Croatian Biological Congress / Klobučar, G. ; Kopjar, N., Gligora Udovič, M., Lukša, Ž. ; Jelić, D. (ed). - Zagreb : Hrvatsko biološko društvo , 2015. 83-84.
Meeting: 12th Croatian Biological Congress with international participation
Location and date: Sv Martin na Muri, Hrvatska, 18-23. 09. 2015.
Keywords: southern Adriatic ; phytoplankton ; diatoms
A total of 117 water samples were analysed and phytoplankton composition and abundance was determined using an inverted light microscope. Maximal abundance of microphytoplankton (1.97 x 104 cells/L) and nanophytoplankton (4.40 x 104 cells/L) was detected in surface samples at P100 and P120 stations, respectively. Diatoms were the dominant microphytoplankton group, with peculiarly large abundances (< 2 x 104 cells/L) detected in deep water samples (> 300 m). Via taxonomic analysis 146 phytoplankton taxa were determined, out of which diatoms dominated with 110 morphotypes. The dominant diatoms were Asterionelopsis glacialis, Pseudo‐ nitzschia sp., Bacteriastrum furcatum and species belonging to the genus Chaetoceros. Further, preliminary analyses showed large number of unidentified planktonic pennate diatoms (34 morphotypes) and for their more accurate taxonomic identification additional analyses with transmission and scanning electron microscope are essential.
