Natural phytoplankton communities in Pichavaram mangroves



Natural phytoplankton communities in Pichavaram mangroves



Indian Journal of Marine Sciences 21(4): 278-280



Phytoplankton community structure characteristics such as species composition, diversity, richness, evenness and dominance index were studied for 2 years in the Pichavaram (India) mangroves. Pennate species such as Nitzschia closterium, Pleurosigma spp., Thalassionema nitzschioides and Thalassiothrix frauenfeldii dominated the population. Diversity, richness and evenness experienced decreasing trend from outer-edge of mangroves towards interior, while dominance index showed opposite trend.
