Domination of diatoms in spring and the increased proportion of small flagellates with a large variety of chlorophytes
in summer are typical of streams and rivers of the temperate climate region (Reynolds et al.
Contribution of chlorophytes
increased in October 2009 (11%) and February 2010 (19%) coincided with increased river discharge (Figure 2 and 6).
This trend is supported by studies run with the chlorophytes
Dunaliella salina (Lamers et al.
Based on the analysis of the present findings, we suggest a mixture of smaller chlorophytes
and large diatoms as an appropriate diet to rear the mussel D.
Diatoms and chlorophytes
were dominant members of the periphyton throughout the study period.
They also found cyanobacteria, chrysophytes and cryptophytes were dominant at times while dinoflagellates, chlorophytes
and euglenoids appeared occasionally abundant, but were relatively minor components on an annual basis.
Ankistrodesmus, Actinastrum, Closterium, Coelastrum, and Pediastrum represented the chlorophytes
are a common and important food item for zooplankton in many lakes.
Preliminary study of the composition and abundance of the phytoplankton and chlorophytes
in laguna Ojo de Liebre, B.
the prymnesiophytes (38%), cryptophytes (20%), chlorophytes
These conditions favor fast-growing oligohaline phytoplankton, such as chlorophytes
were very rare, and the whole cyanophyres we re nearly all Lyngbya spp.
