Description
Phytoplankton monitoring in the Trieste harbour, close to an iron foundry (FERRIERA), in the North Adriatic Sea. Sampling during 2008-2014. more

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.
