Phytoplankton collected in the Po Delta - North Adriatic Sea in the framework of the Italian Flagship Project RITMARE. 2013-2014, more

Samping with NIskin bottles at several discrete depths. Samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3) 2-buffered formaldehyde (0.8% final concentration) and cell abundance and species composition of phytoplankton were estimated according to Utermöhl’s method (1958), using an inverted microscope equipped with phase contrast, at 320-400x final magnifications.
