|Title:||Natural phytoplankton communities in Pichavaram mangroves|
|Abstract:||Phytoplankton community structure characteristics such as species composition, diversity, richness, evenness and dominance index were studied for 2 years in the Pichavaram mangroves. Pennate species such as Nitzschia closterium, Pleurosigma spp., Thalassionema nitzschioides and Thalassiothrix frauenfeldii dominated the population. Diversity, richness and evenness experienced decreasing trend from outer-edge of mangroves towards interior, while dominance index showed opposite trend.|
