Abstract : Relationships between genera of phytoplankton present and the parameters of oceanographic regime and nutrient supply have been given. The research was made at three selected off-shore stations in Monterey Bay, California. Sampling and analysis procedures are described. Results of nutrient analysis include reactive phosphate and silicate. A temperature and salinity profile is described for each station. Phytoplankton analysis lists five genera of dinoflagellates and sixteen genera of diatoms. (Author)
