The under-ice development of the meroplanktonic diatom Aulacoseira baicalensis was studied, using underwater video recording. This is an ice alga, which not only succeeds in vegetating under the ice, but also reproduces intensively in interstitial water-filled spaces inside the ice. This report yields first results of the underwater filming done during the under-ice period of 2000. Our studies have shown that the A. baicalensis aggregations on the ice bottom can be easily destroyed by water… CONTINUE READING
