Physico-chemical conditions and distribution of phytoplankton in the Brass River, Nigeria
AbstractThe physiology, physico-chemical conditions and distribution of phytoplankton in the Brass River, Nigeria has been assessed. The data on physico-chemical conditions revealed a near constant water surface conditions for all the stations sampled. The relative abundance of phytoplankton population of the Brass River system revealed the presence of the following marine phytoplankton families Bacillariophyceae (Bidulphia auria, M. mobiliencesis, B. sinsensis, Skeletonema costatum), Chlorophyceae (Halosphaera ividis), and Dinophyceae (Ceeratium sectum).
