Title: Primary production and seasonal succession of the phytoplankton component of Crescent Pond, Delta Marsh, Manitoba
Authors: Brown, Dennis James.
Issue Date: 1972
Abstract: Considerable work has been done on the macrophytes of the freshwater marsh ecosystem (Walker 1965, 1962), but the contribution of the phytoplankton component to the entire marsh community is essentially unknown, even though a large portion of the marsh is under water. The selection of methodology for primary production cannot be accomplished without prior examination and comparison of methods. Therefore the oxygen evolution and carbon-l4 methods were compared to determine the most suitable method for use in the marsh ecosystem. As well, primary production was measured to determine variations inherent between the two methods as they pertain to the aquatic marsh ecosystem. Quantitative and qualitative fluctuations in the phytoplankton community of Crescent Pond were measured to determine the ecological succession as well as relating the plankton crop to seasonal fluctuations in primary production. Environmental and chemical...
