Diurnal changes in zooplankton respiration rates and the phytoplankton activity in two Chilean lakes
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1989)
Respiration rates of natural zooplankton communities were measured for diel cycles in two lakes. Distinct diurnal cycles were observed in Embalse Rapel with high respiratory rates for the spring cladoceran dominated ...
Phytoplankton from urban and suburban polluted rivers
(E Schweizerbartsche Verlags, 2014-07)
The rivers and streams of the suburban area of Buenos Aires City are strongly affected by punctual discharges of industrial and domestic waste-waters as well as by diffuse pollution due to agricultural activities. Water ...
Optical characterization of Argentinean lakes, from deep Andean lakes to shallow Pampean ones
(E Schweizerbartsche Verlags, 2014-06-07)
The purpose of this article is to aboard phytoplankton community as an optically active particulate component of water systems. Mayor concepts of hydrologic optics such as water components and processes that determine the ...
Phytoplankton summer bloom dynamics in the Bahía Blanca Estuary in relation to changing environmental conditions
We examined austral summer phytoplankton data (December-March) that cover the years 1978-2008 and compared with physico-chemical and meteorological variations in the Bahía Blanca Estuary, Argentina. During the years ...
Phytoplankton primary production in freshwater environments of Argentina
(E Schweizerbartsche Verlags, 2014-03)
In this article we review the existing knowledge about phytoplankton primary production (PPP) studies conducted in freshwater environments of Argentina, as well as the methodologies used to assess it. The large geographical ...
Phytoplanktonic primary production modulated by coastal geomorphology in a highly dynamic environment of central Chile
(Universidad de Valparaíso. Facultad de Ciencias del Mar, 2009)
Metabolic dependence of phytoplankton species richness
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2015-01)
Aim To analyse the dependence of phytoplankton species richness on temperature within the framework of the metabolic theory of ecology (MTE) with explicit consideration of its assumptions and predictions. Location Lakes ...
Phytoplankton primary productivity in an urban eutrophic reservoir (São Paulo, Brazil)
The aim of this study was to analyze temporal ..d vertical variation of the biomass and of phytoplankton primary productivity in an urban eutrophic reservoir, in relation to the physical and chemical characteristics of the ...
Elucidating viral communities during a phytoplankton bloom on the west Antarctic Peninsula
(Frontiers Media, 2019)
In Antarctic coastal waters where nutrient limitations are low, viruses are expected to play a major role in the regulation of bloom events. Despite this, research in viral identification and dynamics is scarce, with limited ...
Phytoplankton activity and standing crop in an impoundment of central Chile
Seasonal and spatial variations of the primary productivity were measured in Rapel reservoir, Chile in 1976 and 1977. Chlorophyll a, phytoplankton and several environmental factors were also measured. The results show that ...
