Description
Microzooplankton abundance and composition were determined in the South Adriatic Sea in the framework of the Italian National Research Project PRISMA1-Flussi Project (1995-1996) more

Sampling at discrete water depths with Niskin bottles deployed with a CTD profiler.
Samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (4% final concentration) and cell abundance and species composition of phytoplankton were estimated according to Utermöhl’s method (1958), using an inverted microscope equipped with phase contrast, at 200-320-400x final magnifications.
