Mar 03,  · Sea Soup: Phytoplankton [Mary M. Cerullo, Bill Curtsinger] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Discusses the microscopic organisms known as phytoplankton and the important functions they serve in replenishing earth's atmosphere5/5(1). Communities of microscopic plant life, or phytoplankton, dominate the Earth's aquatic ecosystems. This important new book by Colin Reynolds covers the adaptations, physiology and population dynamics of phytoplankton communities in lakes and rivers and by: Phytoplankton obtain energy through the process of photosynthesis and must therefore live in the well-lit surface layer (termed the euphotic zone) of an ocean, sea, lake, or other body of water. Phytoplankton account for about half of all photosynthetic activity on Earth. The book will be of prime us to marine biologists. Show less Plankton and Productivity in the Oceans, Second Edition, Volume 1: Phytoplankton presents the different varieties of phytoplankton and nanoplankton forms; the types and temporal changes in phytoplankton communities; and the primary production of planktonic algae in the seas.

Phytoplankton communities dominate the pelagic ecosystems that cover 70% of the world’s surface area. In this marvellous new book Colin Reynolds deals with the adaptations, physiology and popula-tion dynamics of the phytoplankton communities of lakes and rivers, of seas and the great oceans. The book will serve both as a text and a major. Phytoplankton, a flora of freely floating, often minute organisms that drift with water currents. Like land vegetation, phytoplankton uses carbon dioxide, releases oxygen, and converts minerals to a form animals can use.

Phytoplankton cause mass mortality in other ways. In the aftermath of a massive bloom, dead phytoplankton sink to the ocean or lake floor. The bacteria that decompose the phytoplankton deplete the oxygen in the water, suffocating animal life; the result is a dead zone.. Climate and the Carbon CycleAuthor: Rebecca Lindsey.

Cambridge Core - Environmental Chemistry - Phytoplankton Pigments - edited by Suzanne Roy. Certain phytoplankton species are capable of producing toxins. A bloom of a toxic species, which can be dangerous to animal and human health, is called a Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB). Red Tides can be harmless, and HABs can be colorless. Toxigenic species in this book are identified by this logo: For more information, visit: Phytoplankton have a major effect on the ocean color and are one of the primary reason for studying it. Additionally, these microscopic, single cell, free -floating organisms posses chlorophyll, pigment that allows them to harvest the sunlight and through the process of photosynthesis produce energy rich organic material, while releasing the oxygen. The book, ‘An Introduction to Phytoplanktons - Diversity and Ecology’ is very useful as it covers wide aspects of phytoplankton study including the general idea about cyanobacteria and algal.
