In shallow estuaries, benthic microalgae normally account for 20–50% of the total primary production (Underwood and Kromkamp, ). In this chapter, we discuss the benthic algal communities that inhabit the soft-bottom (mud/sandﬂat, seagrass bed, marsh), hard-bottom (rocky intertidal, shallow subtidal), and. Benthic algal ecology and primary pathways of energy flow were considered on the Squamish River delta at the head of Howe Sound, a fjord-type estuary. The study elucidated the structure and function of major autotrophic components of the estuarine ecosystem. Benthic algae were investigated with regard to species composition and distribution and the capacity for energy Cited by: 6.

Light measurements indicate that under certain conditions the diffusers do enhance irradiance levels within the pond, by as much as 20%. So far no resulting increase in productivity has been observed.
Chapter 3. Managing Algal Productivity The preceding overview on biological productivity and physical processes sets the stage for a closer look at what makes algae grow. It should be clear that algal primary productivity is the driving force behind secondary productivity in a fertilized pond. By under-File Size: KB. Key Knowledge Gaps •Reproductive biology: for seagrasses and macroalgae •Long term trends: we found no clear patterns of temporal change, apart from the likely high growth of Enhalus and Sargassum during the wet season. •Environmental thresholds and determinants of abundance: The primary producers in the Kimberley live and thrive in extreme environments that appear to .

Google ScholarCited by: Algae are an important component of aquatic benthic ecosystems because they reflect the health of their environment through their density, abundance, and diversity. This comprehensive and authoritative text is divided into three sections to offer complete coverage of the discussion in this field.
The first section introduces the locations of benthic algae in different ecosystems, like 5/5(1). Benthic primary productivity: production and herbivory of seagrasses, macroalgae and microalgae ii Kimberley Marine Research Program | Project studies in other KMRP projects.
Finally, a major outcome of this project was the strong collaborations established between the project team and the Bardi Jawi rangers.
I have used this book so much during my MSc Project on Algal Communities, that it became my personal bible for all aspects of benthic algal ecology.
It's a very comprehensive book, that is both interesting and relevant right from the start till the very end.5/5(1). Abstract.

Although benthic algal productivity is often of similar magnitude to phytoplankton, scientists tend to focus their studies on the pelagic zone, and a comprehensive understanding of benthic productivity is lacking. (Vadeboncoeur et al. ; Lamberti ).
At the organism level, scleractinian corals showed highest P n and P g rates during non-upwelling (16 and 19 mmol O 2 m −2 specimen area h −1), and corals and algal turfs dominated the primary. developed in our study.
Samples were coll ected annually at each site for 1 to 3 y. Most algal samples were collected during low-ﬂow condi-tions, usually in summer or early autumn.

Benthic producers can have relevance to climate studies both in terms of the amount of productivity and the fate of that productivity. For example, sea-grasses may cover roughly 6 × km2 of the global seaﬂoor and their net primary production (NPP) is estimated to be PgC yr–1 (Duarte & CebrianMateo et al.

In the present study some of the pollution tolerant algal species viz., Euglena, Navicula and Oscillatoria were recorded in S2, S3, S5 and S6 indicating high organic content.

The benthic assemblages were photo- synthetically competent, but dally benthic primary productivity was low ( to g C m-' d-'; an average of 2'Lb of productivity in the water colun~n) because of the very low irradiances at the sediment- water interface.Algae contribute about half of the total global primary productivity measured as carbon.
Most algal productivity is carried out by phytoplankton. Since phytoplankton usually contain more nitrogen and phosphorus relative to carbon than do embryophytic plants, more nitrogen and phosphorus may be assimilated globally by algae than by embryophytes.
