Title: Diatom abundance and community structure in Barkley Sound, Vancouver Island, BC: significant impacts on primary productivity
Author: Rombeau, Kira
Abstract: This research measured diatoms and phytoplankton in Barkley Sound to understand more about the process of exporting carbon from the atmosphere to the deep ocean. The study had three objectives: 1) to measure the autotrophic phytoplankton biomass and estimate diatom abundance in the phytoplankton community; 2) to observe how phytoplankton biomass and diatom size change as a function of diatom abundance and location; amd 3) to measure primary production and relate changes in production to diatom size, diatom abundance and sampling location.
