Of the many phytoplankton taxa identified, this paper presents the results only for chlorophytes
in general, Anabaena sp.
Among the small algae (d < 40 gm) chlorophytes
prevailed followed by cryptophytes and discoid diatoms (genera Cyclotella, Stephanodiscus, Cyclostephanos) and chrysophytes + haptophytes.
These conditions favor fast-growing oligohaline phytoplankton, such as chlorophytes
were very rare, and the whole cyanophyres we re nearly all Lyngbya spp.
The biomasses of other species, the chlorophytes
Monostroma balticum (Areschoug) Wittrock and Ulva intestinalis L.
Optimum light and temperature were probably the most significant factors contributing to density peaks of chlorophytes
in summer (Temponeras and others 2000).
The storage product is the same (starch) as higher plants and is similarly stored within plastids; most algal groups other than chlorophytes
and charophytes (e.
This is with the addition of eight chlorophytes
, one chrysophyte (a macroscopic tubicolus diatom species), two phaeophytes and five rhodophytes (Table 1).
Diatoms were the most abundant and diverse algal organisms (359 taxa), followed by chlorophytes
(121), Cyanobacteria (42), euglenophytes (31), xanthophytes (14), chrysophytes (12), rhodophytes (6), dinophytes (6), and cryptophytes (3).
Also the growth of other algal groups (cyanobacteria, chlorophytes
, and cryptophytes) occurred earlier in those years compared to the spring months of 2005 and 2006.
