The short-term temporal dynamics of phytoplankton composition was compared among coral reef waters, the adjacent ocean and polluted harbour water from July until October along the south-western coast of Curaçao, southern Caribbean. Temporal variations in phytoplankton pigment 'fingerprints' (zeaxanthin, chlorophyll b, 19′-hexanoyloxyfucoxanthin, fucoxanthin, 19′-butanoyloxyfucoxanthin, chlorophyll c 2 and c 3 relative to chlorophyll a) in the ocean were also observed in waters overlying the… CONTINUE READING
