The water exchange between the brackish-water firth Pojoviken and the Baltic Sea is restricted by a shallow sill (6 m). An outflowing, oligohaline surface layer is isolated from the nutrient-rich mesohaline deep water by a pycnocline at a depth of 6–10 m. During the ice-free period phytoplankton production is chiefly regulated by the river discharge regime.(More)
A simple rank similarity index is proposed to use in estimation of ecological community similarities. The analysis of similarities is based on hypergeometric probabilities of the coincidence of dominant species in the samples. When 4 dominant species are ranked in samples, two sets of ranks can be compared in 133 different ways. In the case of total(More)
