The study involved: the comparison of the numbers and types of phytoplankton present in different aquatic systems with the amounts of cellulosic material present in those systems; the estimation of the cellulose content of selective algal species observed in the water column and the determination of proportion of the cellulose present in the organic seston contributed by the phytoplankton population and the comparison of the vertical distribution of the phytoplankton crop with the cellulose and the related carbohydrate fractions in a relatively unpolluted water body.
