Relationship between diversity and productivity of benthic diatoms along the salinity gradient in the Westerschelde, The Netherlands
title in nl
Relatie tussen diversiteit en productiviteit van benthische diatomee├źn langsheen de saliniteitsgradi├źnt van de Westerschelde
Acronym
DIVMOM
Description in English
A large number of species is isolated and a phylogenetic tree of the 18S rDNA of the diatoms is produced. This will be related to function i.e. primary production.
Abstract in English
The biodiversity of microphytobenthos and its spatial and temporal variability along the salinity gradient in the Westerschelde is described using a molecular approach in addition to the classical taxonomy.
