Introduction. Marine planktonic diatoms (hereafter ‘diatoms’) are major components of the phytoplankton and are most common in regions of high productivity (upwelling zones) and in high latitudes –.Diatoms are important for the carbon cycle, generating ca 20% of global primary productivity, and, are key components of the ocean carbon pump via rapid sinking of large cells and by: The North Sea is an extension of the North Atlantic that has an area ofkm2.

It has been found also in the Cape of Good Hope region and in the region of the Straits of Magellan. Plankton consists of a diverse range of living organisms that spend at least a part of their life cycle suspended in water. The term plankton is actually a Greek word, meaning that which is made to wander or term is further divided into the phytoplankton and zooplankton, meaning plant- (Gk.

phyto) and animal- (Gk. zoön) drifters respectively. Marine planktonic diatoms export carbon to the deep ocean, playing a key role in the global carbon cycle. Although commonly thought to have diversified over the Cenozoic as global oceans cooled, only two conflicting quantitative reconstructions exist, both from the Neptune deep-sea microfossil occurrences database.

Total diversity shows Cenozoic increase but is sample size biased; conventional. Algae (/ ˈ æ l dʒ i, ˈ æ l ɡ i /; singular alga / ˈ æ l ɡ ə /) is an informal term for a large, diverse group of photosynthetic eukaryotic organisms that are not necessarily closely related, and is thus ed organisms range from unicellular microalgae, such as Chlorella and the diatoms, to multicellular forms, such as the giant kelp, a large brown alga which may grow.

Edward J. Carpenter, Douglas G. Capone, in Nitrogen in the Marine Environment (Second Edition), Pelagic diazotrophs. In the open ocean, N 2 fixation research has focused most intensively on the cyanobacterium, Trichodesmium (Carpenter, ; Saino, ).Much of the earlier work has been summarized by Carpenter (a,b), Howarth et al.

A major change was the addition of species from across North America and the renaming of the key to reflect this broader coverage to: An Image-based Key to the Zooplankton of North America.

This group is comprised of mostly of single-celled algae, diatoms, and bacteria. Marine planktonic diatoms are responsible for up to 20% of primary production on earth, fixing more than 10 billion tons of inorganic carbon each year (Falkowski and Raven, ).Diatoms achieve this, despite CO 2-limiting conditions in the oceans, by using CO 2-concentrating mechanisms (CCMs) actively to increase the steady-state CO 2 concentration around Rubisco, the principal Cited by:   The small marine plankton diatom Thalassiosira pseudonana Hasle and Heimdal (Guillard's clone 3H) was grown in chemostats with silicate as the limiting nutrient.

In both the Pacific and Southern Oceans, however, very reliable biochronologies have been developed for Miocene and younger sediments using evolutionary events of planktonic marine diatoms (Barron, ; Scherer et al., ), many of which have been tied directly to paleomagnetic planktonic foraminifers and calcareous nannoplankton, diatoms are diverse and common in cool Cited by: 4.

planktonic species (dinoflagellates), or the freshwater from the marine species (Haptophyta). The estimates given are thus overestimated for some taxa, however, in those groups, marine phytoplanktonic species are largely dominant [33,45].
