Phytoplankton Data Collected During CPR Tows of the Southern Ocean - Australian Antarctic Division Copy
Entry ID: ASAC_4107_Phytoplankton

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Data are "phytoplankton counts" for each phytoplankton taxon observed, from the CPR samples collected by the Southern Ocean CPR Survey projects 472 and 4107 (Hosie et al. 2003). The SAHFOS on-silk phytoplankton count method is used (Batten et al. 2003). Phytoplankton are identified to the best taxonomic level possible, ideally to species or at least genus, in 20 fields of view (295 plus or ... View entire text
