Structure and Distribution of Phytoplankton communities in Arctic Sea, 2011Entry ID: KPDC_SADOPCIAS_2011
Abstract: In order to investigate the structure of phytoplankton communities, this study was carried out at 18 stations from July 29 to August 20, 2011 in the Chukchi Sea and Sea Ice. Concentrations of total microphytoplankton, and nano-picophytoplankton chlorophyll a were higher at southwest area than northern area in the study area due to Bering shelf Anadyr Water current from Bering strait. In the Melting ponds, phytoplankton communities were composed of 31 taxa representing Bacillariophyceae, Chrysophyceae, Dictyochophyceae, Prasinophyceae and unidentified phytoplankton(< 20㎛). The most abundant species were Pyramimonas sp. and Thalassiosira sp. except nano-pico sized phytoplankton in Melting pond.
Purpose: 1) To investigate on species composition, abundance and dominant species of phytoplankton communities in the Chukchi Sea and Sea Ice
2) To study on taxonomic research and dominant species of phytoplankton communities for investigate on indicator species
