Phytoplankton and Trophic Gradients Proceedings of the 10th Workshop of the International Association of Phytoplankton Taxonomy & Ecology (IAP), held in Granada, Spain, 21–29 June Editors: Alvarez-Cobelas, M., Reynolds, C.S., Sanchez-Castillo, P., Kristiansen, J. (Eds.). Abstract I provide a conceptual landscape of attributes of phytoplankton related to trophic gradients, by reviewing 69 papers and books on eutrophication, with special reference to the ecology of the phytoplankton. Forty-eight ecological variables such as total phosphorus and Chi-a, are used, each related to the trophic gradient by: The abundance of phytoplankton species and the spe- cies structure of phytoplankton assemblages vary along trophic and seasonal gradients (Reynolds , b). Because phytoplankton species with similar functional attributes Cited by: Phytoplankton biomass and size structure across trophic gradients in the southern California Current and adjacent ocean ecosystems Andrew G.

Likewise, phytoplankton growth rates also showed a positive correlation with inorganic nutrients in this area. Free-living bacteria were generally more abundant than attached ones all along the estuary. However, following the longitudinal gradient of turbidity, the proportion of attached bacteria increased from the lower to the upper estuary.

Longitudinal gradients in the epilimnetic waters of stratified reservoirs provide a useful database to study changing environmental conditions. The spatial distribution, assemblage structure and specific adaptations of phytoplankton assemblages can be analysed along these gradients over short time scales. 2. Each of the following phytoplankton functional attributes could be described by significant (P trophic status (T) from oligotrophy to hypertrophy and season (S) from early vernal period to late summer: phytoplankton cell volume, growth rate, the ratio between minimum quotas of total N and total P, affinity for P, half‐saturation constant for Cited by:
