Seasonal and inter-annual plankton variability in the Gulf of Trieste (northern Adriatic)
Seasonal and inter-annual variability of environmental characteristics and of plankton were analysed based on monthly surveys of the physical structure of the water column, nutrients, phytoplankton,
Eleven years of time-series analysis on the net-zooplankton community in the Gulf of Trieste
Net-zooplankton data collected at one coastal station of the Gulf of Trieste from 1970 to 1980 were analysed in order to test the existence of any successional trend among the copepod community and showed a clear 12-month periodicity with winter maxima corresponding to the highest level of stability.
Analyses of the Relationship Between Mucous Aggregates and Phytoplankton Communities in the Gulf of Trieste (Northern Adriatic Sea) by Multivariate Techniques
. Multivariate techniques (cluster analysis and Principal Component Analysis) applied on phytoplankton data collected in June, July, August, and September 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993 in the Gulf of
The ocean sampling day consortium
This commentary outlines the establishment, function and aims of the Ocean Sampling Day Consortium and describes the vision for a sustainable study of marine microbial communities and their embedded functional traits.
Depth profiles of bacterioplankton assemblages and their activities in the Ross Sea
The presence of eukaryotic chloroplasts’ 16S rDNA in deep samples highlighted how in some cases the dense surface-water formation and downwelling can affect, at least for some phylotypes, the bacterial community structure of the dark ocean.
Assemblages' structure and activity of bacterioplankton in northern Adriatic Sea surface waters: a 3-year case study.
The high variability of bacterial community structures and patterns of activity may indicate an ecological response to the high dynamism that characterizes the basin both on a physical and on a biological basis.
Water masses’ bacterial community structure and microbial activities in the Ross Sea, Antarctica
Abstract During the summer 2005/06, an oceanographic cruise was carried out in the Ross Sea, from Cape Adare, through the Terra Nova Bay polynya to the eastern edge of the Ross Ice Shelf. We analysed
Detection of pathogenic Vibrio parahaemolyticus through biochemical and molecular-based methodologies in coastal waters of the Gulf of Trieste (North Adriatic Sea).
Molecular characterization demonstrated the presence of V. parahaemolyticus trh-positive strains and underlined the difficulty in the recognition of the pathogenic environmental organism using conventional methods.
Annual dynamics of bacterioplankton assemblages in the Gulf of Trieste (Northern Adriatic Sea).
Bacterioplankton community diversity was investigated monthly in coastal waters of the Gulf of Trieste (NE Adriatic Sea) throughout 2003 using PCR-DGGE fingerprinting techniques, finding a defined operational taxonomic units (OTUs) succession pattern in the more typically marine station with stable winter communities and quickly changing summer ones.
