Abstract
(English)
Sampling cruises were carried out on three coastal stations in the Northern Ionian Sea over one year to investigate the effects of environmental factors on phytoplankton and picophytoplankton composition and succession. Larger phytoplankton (micro and nano fractions) was determined by using Utermohl settling technique,while picophytoplankton fraction was determined by epifluorescence microscopy. Furthermore, microbiological procedures were applied to investigate cyanobacterial diversity in the studied area. Results suggested that the most striking feature of phytoplankton communities was the high spatial variability in terms of abundance and biomass, which showed specific coastal Mediterranean values.
Abstract
(Italiano)
Sono stati effettuati dei campionamenti in tre stazioni costiere del Mar Ionio settentrionale per la durata di un anno, per indagare sugli effetti dei fattori ambientali sulla composizione del fitoplancton e del picofitoplancton. I risultati degli esperimenti hanno suggerito che la caratteristica pi¨ interessante delle comunitÓ di fitoplancton si Ŕ dimostrata essere l'elevata variabilitÓ spaziale in termini di abbondanza e biomassa, che mostrava dei valori specifici costieri mediterranei.
