EPA/// January IDENTIFICATION MANUAL FOR PHYTOPLANKTON OF THE UNITED STATES ATLANTIC COAST by Harold G. Marshall, Ph.D. Department of Biological Sciences Old Dominion University Norfolk, Virginia Contract No. CNAST Project Officers Gary B. Collins, Ph.D. Quality Assurance Branch and Cornelius I. Weber, Ph.D. .   Introduction. Marine planktonic diatoms (hereafter ‘diatoms’) are major components of the phytoplankton and are most common in regions of high productivity (upwelling zones) and in high latitudes –.Diatoms are important for the carbon cycle, generating ca 20% of global primary productivity, and, are key components of the ocean carbon pump via rapid Cited by:

A species that can live in many different habitats and can feed on a number of different organisms. For example, shore crabs on the Pacific coast live in a wide variety of habitats, such as mud, sand and rock, and feed on everything from the algae growing on rocks to invertebrates to detritus. Compare specialist.   Mass extinctions are important to macroevolution not only because they involve a sharp increase in extinction intensity over “background” levels, but also because they bring a change in extinction selectivity, and these quantitative and qualitative shifts set the stage for evolutionary by:

planktonic species (dinoflagellates), or the freshwater from the marine species (Haptophyta). The estimates given are thus overestimated for some taxa, however, in those groups, marine phytoplanktonic species are largely dominant [33,45]. As for the Euglenophyta, as mentioned in the text, the existence of truly phytoplanktonic species is question-. Planktonic: Floating in the water column; planktonic diatoms are typically centric, or round. Phytoplankton: A type of plankton (drifting marine organism that makes up the foundation of the marine food web) that relies on photosynthesis. This group is comprised mostly of single-celled algae, diatoms, and bacteria.

(n = 52) in the North Pacific, and & my. (n = 38) in the Southern Ocean. The planktonic diatoms belonging to two genera Chaetoceros and Bacteriastrum, included within the family Chaetocerotaceae, are ecologically important as they represent an important component of the phytoplankton in the coastal regions and are often among bloom-forming taxa.

A checklist based on net samples taken twice weekly from until May is presented. Identification is based on observations under direct light microscopy and after taking some organisms in culture.

The checklist includes taxa observed at the Helgoland Reede sampling station. One hundred and thirty-two species of diatoms from 53 genera and 95 species of dinoflagellates from 35 genera Cited by:   Diatoms are the dominant group of phytoplankton in the modern ocean.

They account for approximately 40% of oceanic primary productivity and over 50% of organic carbon burial in marine sediments 1. Studies on the biodiversity of marine phytoplankton in Costa Rican coasts are sparse and mostly confined to the Pacific coast, more specifically to the Golfo de Nicoya.

New records presented here come from the three most important embayments in the Pacific coast. We report species, for the Pacific coast. The North Sea is an extension of the North Atlantic that has an area ofkm2. The deepest area is off the coast of Norway (m), with a number of shallow areas, such as the Dogger Bank (15m).

Pseudo-nitzschia is a marine planktonic diatom genus containing some species capable of producing the neurotoxin domoic acid (DA), which is responsible for the neurological disorder known as amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP).

Currently, 54 species are known, 26 of which have been shown to produced DA. It was originally hypothesized that only dinoflagellates could Class: Bacillariophyceae.Plankton consists of a diverse range of living organisms that spend at least a part of their life cycle suspended in water.

The term plankton is actually a Greek word, meaning that which is made to wander or term is further divided into the phytoplankton and zooplankton, meaning plant- (Gk.

Although commonly thought to have diversified over the Cenozoic as global oceans cooled, only two conflicting quantitative reconstructions exist, both from the Neptune deep-sea microfossil occurrences database.
