Marine Phytoplankton Grouped by Sample and Specific Functional Group

<p>This dataset contains phytoplankton samples collected from Puget Sound and analyzed using a particle imaging analyzer (FlowCAM®). For more information see the King County <a href="" > marine phytoplankton</a> webpage. </p><p>This specific dataset summarizes phytoplankton abundance and biovolume data by functional group. Additional datasets summarize abundance and biovolume data by:</p><p>• <a href="" >Size Class (all size classes in a sample in one line)</a></p><p>• <a href="" >Sample By Size Class (each sample size class in one line)</a></p><p>• <a href="" >Sample by Generic Functional Group</a></p><p>• <a href="" >Sample by Taxonomic Group</a></p><p>For locator information, see the <a href="">WLRD Water Quality Collection Sites</a> dataset.</p><p>For corresponding water quality data matched by Grab ID see the <a href="">Water Quality</a> dataset.</p>
