Descriptions:
Monitoring of Microphytobenthos abundance and community composition has been carried out with an irregular frequency, from monthly to seasonal, in the Gulf of Trieste, from 2/1999 to 06/2005.
KC Haps bottom corer, 13 cm internal diameter. The sampled layer consists of the upper 5 mm of the sediment which has been homogenized. Samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (0.8% final concentration) and cell abundance and species composition of microphytobenthos were estimated according to Utermöhl’s method (1958), using an inverted microscope equipped with phase contrast, at 200-320-400x final magnifications.
