Phytoplankton as eutrophication indicator in the Gulf of Gdansk water
Languages of publication
The present survey presents the results of phytoplankton number and biomass measurements and also chlorophyll a contents in marine water. The investigations were started in autumn1994 and continued in summer 1995 along six coastal profiles in the Gulf of Gda?sk. The paper provides the current condition of the phytoplankton - the first link in the food chain in a water body biocenosis. The research confirmed also the early 80s findings as to the changed structure of phytoplankton domination where flagellates dominated in terms of number and dinoflagellates - in terms of biomass.
