Annual succession cycle of planktonic algal cenoses of estuarine ecosystems of northern seas of Russia

Makarevich P.R.
Abstract

Based on a review and analysis of multiyear data on the dynamics of the taxonomic composition and quantitative characteristics of planktonic algal cenoses of pelagic estuarine ecosystems of arctic seas, a conceptual scheme of annual succession cycle is formulated. Four phases are identified: the winter dormancy stage, the cryoflora bloom stage, the spring succession cycle, and the stage of summer–autumn balanced development.

Keywords: microalgae, estuarine ecosystems, annual succession cycle
