General Information:
Title:Lake Baikal Plankton
Identifier:nceas.290
Abstract:
This data set was collected at roughly 7-10 day intervals approximately 1 km offshore from Bolshie Koty on Lake Baikal. Depths span 0 - 250 m with regularity and frequently deeper. Zooplankton and phytoplankton are identified to species and lifestage where applicable. Temperature and Secchi depth are available for full time series, chlorophyll a and primary productivity are available since 1979. The data set has been under the direction of Mikhail Kozhov, Olga Kozhova and Lyubov Izmest'eva since roughly 1945. Data uploaded in 2008 correspond to analyses and descriptions in Hampton et al. 2008 (In press) Sixty Years of Environmental Change in the World’s Largest Freshwater Lake – Lake Baikal, Siberia. Global Change Biology.
