Osmotic and ionic requirements of the marine centric diatom
The aim of this study is to describe environmental changes (natural and influenced by human activities) in the northern part of the Curonian Lagoon since ca 1800, using diatom
assemblage analysis together with stable isotope analysis on a dated sediment core.
assemblage recovered from the Beaver Pond site represented mainly extant freshwater taxa.
However, the planktonic diatom
composition from the two sampling units was similar, even with the landform (Iguassu falls) interposition and with the different depth and width of each investigated location.

The structure of the periphytic diatom
assemblage, summarized by a NMDS, showed a separation only between sites studied (Figure 4a).

is one of the most common and dominant phytoplankton species (Anabalon et al.
The total diatom
biomass was substantially (from 29% in April to 77% in June) higher in station DG1 than in station DG7 during all sampling occasions except for August when the diatom
biomass observed in station DG7 exceeded that in station DG1 (Fig.
Therefore, the internal kinetic energy of the diatom
