Species composition of living coccolithophore communities in the NE Aegean Sea (NE Mediterranean)


This study presents the species composition of living coccolithophore communities in the NE Aegean Sea. 72 water samples from 4 different sampling stations were investigated. Stations were located along a north-south transect in the area receiving the inflowing surface Black Sea Water (BSW) over the deeper Levantine Water (LW) layer. 6 different sample depths were sampled. Coccolithophores in the area were diverse and a total of 95 species over 3 sampling periods were recognized using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) techniques.
