Authors: Billington, Neil
Issue Date: 1985
Publisher: © Neil Billington
Abstract: Small scales patchiness of phytoplankton biomass was the area around a single sampling station on a freshwater lake (Charnwood Water. Loughborough. between October l978 and October 1981. Patchiness in zooplankton and nutrients was also investigated. Data were initially examined by one-way analysis of variance in order to separate actual variation from measurement error. Nested analysis of variance models were used to examine the relative contributions of horizontal. vertical and diurnal variation and two-way analysis of variance was used to examine the importance of horizontal variation on the resolution of seasonal changes in phytoplankton biomass...
