Descriptions:
Phytoplankton data acquired along a North-South transect along the whole Adriatic Sea in the framework of EU SESAME Project (http://seadatanet.maris2.nl/v_edmerp/print.asp?n_code=7643).
Sampling along the water column was performed with Niskin bottles associated to a CTD profiler. At each station, several discrete depths were sampled, according to station depth and hydrological vertical profiles. 2 oceanographic surveys were carried out in 2008 along a North South section in the Adriatic Sea. The first in February and the second in October 2008. Samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (0.8% final concentration) and cell abundance and species composition of phytoplankton were estimated according to Utermöhl’s method (1958), using an inverted microscope equipped with phase contrast, at 200-320-400x final magnifications.
