Plankton form the base of the Chesapeake Bay food web. All fish and shellfish depend on plankton for food during the early part of their lives, and some consume plankton their entire lives. Plankton are often used as indicators of the Bay’s health because they have a short life span and they are very sensitive to environmental changes.

Resolving long-term trends of these properties requires that we distinguish climate effects from secular changes reflecting anthropogenic by:   The dominant phytoplankton taxa during seasonal periods of peak primary productivity were identified during a 4 yr study (July to June ) in Chesapeake Bay.

Maximum phytoplankton abundance occurred from late winter to early spring, and was dominated by a few species of centric diatoms. This development was followed by more diversified Cited by: Title of Document: CLIMATE FORCING OF PHYTOPLANKTON DYNAMICS IN CHESAPEAKE BAY William David Miller, Doctor of Philosophy, Directed By: Professor Lawrence W.

Harding, Jr. Horn Point Laboratory, UMCES Marine Estuarine Environmental Science Climate has long been recognized as an important driver of phytoplankton dynamics. Phytoplankton are microscopic algae that float freely in the water.

In an effort led by ICPRB staff, a phytoplankton index of biotic integrity (PIBI) was developed for the Bay in /6 and re-validated with new data in Community-level phytoplankton metrics (e.g., chlorophyll, diatom biomass, dinoflagellate biomass) are calculated from. Chesapeake Bay Institute, The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland Abstract Eight stations in the main body of Chesapeake Bay and one on the continental shelf were sampled seven times over a period of 13 months to investigate the nitrogenous nutri- tion of Cited by: The phytoplankton community in the lower Chesapeake Bay includes a variety of potentially bloom-forming dinoflagellates (e.g., Prorocentrum.

However, in spite of the wealth of data and research available for the region, the complexity of this ecosystem is not widely understood or appreciated.

The authors draw on the large volume of available data to explain how th 5/5(3). Tiny plankton have a huge impact on the Chesapeake. How much do you know about these important members of the Bay's food chain. Which of these is true of most plankton. Plankton are excellent swimmers.

Plankton are free-floating. The Bay's plankton population has suffered a severe decline. The Phytoplankton Ecology lab is a research unit of the Department of Biological Sciences at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William and Mary.

We hope to expand these projects to work within the lower Chesapeake Bay in the near future. Current Research. The phytoplankton, Amphisolenia actually, but in the Chesapeake Bay area, they’re usually eaten by zooplankton, which are considered animals, and then by .External nutrient loadings, internal nutrient pools, and phytoplankton production were examined for three major subsystems of the Chesapeake Bay Estuary-the upper Mainstem, the Patuxent Estuary, and the Potomac Estuary-during The atomic nitrogen to phosphorus ratios (TN:TP) of total loads w 29 respectively.Chesapeake Bay provides a richly documented case study of the limits to the control of phytoplankton by filter-feeding benthos in estuaries.
