BioBasis Zackenberg - Lakes - Phytoplankton

Data on phytoplankton numbers and biovolume in the two monitoring lakes. For further details, please refer to the newest BioBasis manual available at the website. Lakes:Lakes BioBasis Zackenberg:The BioBasis programme monitors the dynamics of organisms and biological processes in the terrestrial and limnic ecosystems at Zackenberg and Nuuk. The BioBasis programme plays a central role in the development and implementation of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme (CBMP) across the Arctic.
