Limnological characterization of continental aquatic environments and algal diversity from Deception Island. Project No. 24 2002-2004
Entry ID: CDA_AR_LIMNOLOGY_DECEPTION_IS


Summary
Abstract: ENGLISH
Project No. 24 2002-2004
(In cooperation with Buenos Aires University, Argentina)

The aims of this project are: the limnological characterization of the
different water bodies from Deception Island through the study of biotic
factors (distribution of continental algae) and morphometric and
physico-chemical features; the analysis of the diversity of freshwater,
aerophilic and cryobiontic algae by means of a thorough floristic survey and
comparison with floras of surrounding areas (Maritime Antarctica, Tierra del
Fuego and Patagonia); the study of the structure and dynamics of algal
communities from different biotopes (phytoplankton and periphyton) throughout
summer and their relation with abiotic features; and the definition of the
trophic status of water bodies and its relation with different sources of
natural eutrophication.

Caracterizacion limnologica de ambientes acuaticos continentales y diversidad
algal de la isla Decepcion. Proyecto No. 24 2002-2004
(En cooperacion con Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina)

Este proyecto propone: la caracterizacion limnologica de los distintos cuerpos
de agua de la Isla Decepcion mediante el estudio de factores bioticos
(distribucion de algas continentales) y abioticos (parametros morfometricos y
fisicoquimicos); el analisis de la diversidad de algas continentales
(dulciacuacolas, aerofilas y criofilas) mediante un relevamiento floristico
completo y su comparacion con floras de regiones aledanas (Antartica Maritima,
Tierra del Fuego y Patagonia continental); el estudio de la estructura y
dinamica estival de las comunidades algales (fitoplancton y perifiton) de
distintos biotopos y su relacion con los factores abioticos; la definicion del
estado trofico de los cuerpos de agua y su relacion con distintas fuentes de
eutrofizacion natural.
