A range of diatom and dinoflagellate species survived for at least 27 months in these the validity of using marine planktonic diatoms and dinoflagellates for.
Marine phytoplankton are mainly comprised of microalgae known as dinoflagellates and diatoms, though other algae and cyanobacteria can be present. Where bmdia is the biomass of planktonic diatoms, and bmdino that of autotrophic + mixotrophic dinoflagellates the index is a simple absolute measure. There are two main types of the larger phytoplankton species: diatoms and dinoflagellates smaller phytoplankton categorized as nanoplankton and.
