Phytoplankton Sampling

Santa Cruz Harbor










We are providing this weekly report as a service to interested readers.  Our goal is to deliver a near-real time description of the plankton community assemblage.  Thus, species observations are made rapidly using a relatively low power stereomicroscope.  We have not exhaustively verified species descriptions and occasionally a description may be in error. Comments and feedback are encouraged.
