This report presents the species and abundance of phytoplankton in the Atchafalaya Basin. From 86 phytoplankton samples examined, 107 genera and 287 species of algae were identified. Occurrence and dominant occurrence of phytoplankton genera and species are listed. The Nygaard's Trophic State Index (Nygaard 1949), Palmer's Organic Pollution Index (Palmer 1969), as well as species diversity and abundance indices are included. Also, study areas inside and outside the Basin were compared and contrasted for chemical, physical and biological characteristics.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 44-45).
