Production and Fate of Dissolved and Particulate Organic Matter During Antarctic Phytoplankton Blooms
Entry ID: ASAC_630

Abstract: From the abstract of one of the papers:

Phytoplankton biomass and speciation were monitored at an inshore site near Davis Station, East Antarctica during three consecutive summer seasons (December-February, 1992-5). Four distinct phytoplankton assemblages were identified in which the dominant species were: Phaeocystis sp., an undescribed Cryptomonas species, Thalassiosira dichotomica, and a ... View entire text
