Description:

This online phytoplankton checklist was created by Mats Kuylenstierna and Bengt Karlson of Goteborg University, Sweden. The aim of the "checklist is to provide up to date information on phytoplankton and heterotrophic protests found in the Skagerrak and the Kattegat, N. Atlantic Ocean." The site contains 282 species sheets organized alphabetically in sections for Diatoms (Bacillariophyceae or Daitomophyceae), Dinoflagellates (Dinophyta), and other plankton. Species sheets include beautiful images and brief entries regarding Synonym(s), Size, Life-Form, Distinctive Features, Distribution, Literature, and more. The site also provides a taxonomic overview, an extensive list of references, and even a plankton movie.
