Phytoplankton chlorophyll-breakdown pathway: Implication in ecosystem assessment
The chlorophyll-breakdown to pheophorbide is determined by biotic factors such as grazing (via chlorophyllide) or senescence (via pheophytin). So far, much of the information on chlorophyll-breakdown is available from ...
Short term response of plankton community to nutrient enrichment in central eastern Arabian Sea: Elucidation through mesocosm experiments
Oligotrophic waters (OW), generally favour longer food chain facilitated by the microbial loop. In such ecosystems, physical mixing (e.g. upwelling, and winter convection) inject nutrients and propagules from subsurface ...
Phytoplankton communities in marine intertidal rock-pools: Effect of location, geometric shapes and allelopathy
Biologically rich rock-pools (RPs) are prominent component of rocky intertidal habitat and this study elucidates the factors aAecting the phytoplankton distribution from high-tide (HT), mid-tide (MT) and low-tide (LT) RPs ...
Dinoflagellates cyst assemblage concerning trophic index for eutrophication from major ports along the west coast of India
An overview of dinoflagellates cysts assemblage is presented as a trophic index for three monsoon-influenced estuarine and marine ports along the Indian coast. The cyst distribution (including harmful species) showed a ...
Benthic-pelagic coupling assessed using phytoplankton marker pigments: a case study from the Paradip port, East Coast of India
This study addresses the seasonal distribution of phytoplankton marker pigments (PMP) and the ratios (indicating freshness and fate) from water and surface sediments from the coastal port ecosystem (Paradip port, Odisha, ...
