Abstract : The program computes concentrations of cell numbers, cell surface areas and cell and plasma volumes in marine phytoplankton populations. Also mean cell areas, mean cell volumes and mean plasma volumes as well as the ratios cell area to cell volume and cell area to plasma volume can be computed optionally. The input quantities cell numbers, cell shapes and dimensions are obtained from microscopical examination of preserved seawater samples sedimented in counting chambers. (Author)
