Description
List of phytoplankton species for 13 salinity zones along the Tamar estuary on 10th of April, 1969. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Mommaerts, J.-P. (1971). Note sur le nannoplankton de l'estuaire du Tamar (Plymouth, Grande-Bretagne): étude d'un transect couvrant tout le gradient de salinité. more

The Tamar estuary has been sampled from sea to freshwater. Salinity and chlorophyll a have been measured and nannoplankton determined.
