Relationships between phytoplankton community composition and environmental variables in the East China Sea (ECS) and Yellow Sea (YS) were investigated using geochemical and molecular microbiology methods. The diversity of phytoplankton was characterized using cultivation-independent PCR-based denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). Groups resulting from unweighted pair-group method with arithmetic averages clustering of the DGGE profiles showed good consistency with the eco-environmental characteristics of the sea area they belonged to. Additionally, the clustering results based on DGGE fingerprinting and those based on morphological compositions were practically identical. The relationship of phytoplankton diversity to environmental factors was statistically analyzed. Temperature, dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN), and silicate-Si were found significantly related to the phytoplankton community composition. Canonical correspondence analysis (CCA) was performed to reveal the relationship between community composition and these three environmental factors. Generally, values of the ECS are clearly separated from those of the YS in the CCA biplot, due to mainly the effect of temperature and DIN.

曹知勉; 戴民汉 (2008-01-10)钙离子是海洋11种常量离子之一,与钠、钾等离子的保守性不同,钙离子在海洋中的分布表现出微小但系统的变化。钙离子的变化往往与海洋碳酸钙的形成和溶解过程有关,所以,钙离子可直接指示海洋碳酸钙通量(深层海洋碳通量的主要组成部分)。同时,碳酸钙沉淀或溶解又会改变总碱度和溶解无机碳,通过钙离子变化也能间接探讨海洋碳酸盐系统和海洋吸收CO2的能力。介绍了以碳酸钙溶解形成超额钙为主的海洋钙离子多种非保守行为及其控制过程,讨论这些过程对海水组成和海洋碳 ...
