Differences in water chemistry and in the composition, abundance and activity of benthic and planktonic plant communities were observed in freshwater lakes of different trophic status at Signy Island, South Orkney Islands, maritime Antarctica. Phytoplankton density increased with increasing nutrient concentration. Picoplankton ( < 2 μm) contributed most chlorophyll–a and numbers to the phytoplankton in all lakes, but the nanoplankton fraction (2–20 μm) was disproportionally active in… CONTINUE READING
