NEAR BOTTOM PHYTOPLANKTON AND SESTON: IMPORTANCE IN THE PELAGIC-BENTHIC COUPLING PROCESSES $100.00
Authors:  Sergio Rossi and Josep-Maria Gili
Abstract:
The near bottom water layer of the ocean represents a boundary system between two
oceanic biotopes (pelagial and benthal). Seston in general and phytoplankton in particular
have complex features in the epibenthic water layers, due to different components that lye
on the sea floor (interaction with the three dimensional alive structures like suspension
feeders, seweeds, etc.; a special hydro dynamism; a combination of benthic and pelagic
phytoplankton in the competition for nutrients and light; the resuspension and lateral
advection of particles and nutrients near the bottom, among other things). Although it is
recognized as an important part that explains pelagic-benthic coupling processes, these
water layers have been largely neglected. The activity of benthic organisms can exert an
influence on seston composition and concentration, but also the sampling frequency and
different methodological approaches within different ecosystems has to be carefully
considered to understand the dynamics of this boundary system. Differences among
habitats, the temporary component of phytoplankton (cysts), the seasonal food
availability (seston and phytoplankton) for benthic suspension feeders depending on the
studied area, how these animals impact on the phytoplankton abundance and composition, and which is the return to the system (in form of nutrient excretion) from
these benthic organisms will be discussed within this chapter.
