In situ phytoplankton microcosms were developed and characterized for use in toxicity testing. The microcosms contained 225 μm filtered seawater maintained in 1 liter glass bottles attached to a plastic frame and immersed at 3 m under the sea surface. Synechococcus and picoeukaryote population dynamics in microcosms and the surrounding water were compared. A bloom-like behaviour observed for Synechococcus in these phytoplankton microcosms was avoided when 10% of the culture volume was replaced… CONTINUE READING
