Desmids of the Lowlands: Mesotaeniaceae and Desmidiaceae of the European Lowlands
The present flora describes all desmid taxa known from the Netherlands and adjacent lowland areas: over 500 species and more than 150 additional varieties. Because of the predominantly cosmopolitanExpand

STRUCTURAL CHARACTERISTICS AND ADAPTATIONS OF DESMID COMMUNITIES
SUMMARY (1) Nearly 400 samples containing desmids, previously referred to three groups by the application of a classification program, were ordinated on the basis of their desmid species composition.Expand

Biogeography of desmids
Compared with other groups of unicellular freshwater algae, desmids lend themselves well to biogeographical studies since, at species level, identification is often relatively easy, whereas highExpand

COMPETITION FOR PHOSPHORUS AMONG PLANKTONIC DESMID SPECIES IN CONTINUOUS‐FLOW CULTURE 1
When grown under stringent P limitation, affinity for P uptake and growth in Staurastrum pingue Teil. and Staurastrum chaetoceras (Schr.) G. M. Smith (both originating from eutrophic lakes) were ofExpand

Alkaline phosphatase activity in two planktonic desmid species and the possible role of an extracellular envelope
1. Cosmarium abbreviatum var. planctonicum, a desmid from oligo-mesotrophic lakes, had a higher maximum alkaline phosphatase activity (APA) and affinity constant under both continuous and pulsedExpand

Growth responses of planktonic desmid species in a temperature—light gradient
SUMMARY. 1. Isolates of twelve planktonic desmid species were tested for their growth response in batch culture, using an apparatus that generates crossed gradients of temperature and lightExpand

Carbon acquisition mechanisms by planktonic desmids and their link to ecological distribution
To test if different inorganic carbon (Ci) uptake mechanisms underlie the ecological distribution pattern of planktonic desmids, we performed pH-drift experiments with 12 strains, belonging to sevenExpand
