Abstract

ORIGINAL ARTICLE Dinoflagellates and ciliates at Helgoland Roads, North Sea Martin Gu¨nther Joachim Lo¨der • Alexandra Claudia Kraberg • Nicole Aberle • Silvia Peters • Karen Helen Wiltshire Received: 19 July 2010 / Revised: 6 December 2010 / Accepted: 27 December 2010 � Springer-Verlag and AWI 2011 Abstract A monitoring programme for microzooplank- ton was started at the long-term sampling station ‘‘Kabeltonne’’ at Helgoland Roads (54�11.30N; 7�54.00E) in January 2007 in order to provide more detailed knowl- edge on microzooplankton occurrence, composition and seasonality patterns at this site and to complement the existing plankton data series. Ciliate and dinoflagellate cell concentration and carbon biomass were recorded on a weekly basis. Heterotrophic dinoflagellates were consid- erably more important in terms of biomass than ciliates, especially during the summer months. However, in early spring, ciliates were the major group of microzooplankton grazers as they responded more quickly to phytoplankton food availability. Mixotrophic dinoflagellates played a secondary role in terms of biomass when compared to heterotrophic species; nevertheless, they made up an intense late summer bloom in 2007. The photosynthetic ciliate Myrionecta rubra bloomed at the end of the sam- pling period. Due to its high biomass when compared to crustacean plankton especially during the spring bloom, microzooplankton should be regarded as the more impor- tant phytoplankton grazer group at Helgoland Roads. Based on these results, analyses of biotic and abiotic fac- tors driving microzooplankton composition and abundance are necessary for a full understanding of this important component of the plankton.
