dc.description.abstractPhytoplankton samples were picked with bottle from among reed stands or from above thick beds of submerged plants from the depth 20-30 cm, were preserved in Lugol’s (acidified iodine) solution and counted under an inverted microscope (Utermöhl, 1958). 3 ml of preserved sample was settled overnight and counted in random fields or transects. Biovolumes of algal cells, colonies and/or filaments were calculated using assigned geometric shapes dimensions, and converted to biomass assuming the specific density of 1 g cm-3 in accordance with Edler (1979). Macroscopic colonies of Gloeotrichia echinulata were enumerated visually in 500 ml measuring cylinder. Counting units are independent (single) algal cells, colonies or filaments/trichomes. One species or taxon may be present in the sample as different counting units and may be counted at different magnifications.

The most commonly used traditional biomass estimate for microalgae is cell biovolume, which is calculated from microscopically measured linear dimensions (Steinman et al. 1991, Snoeijs 1994, Sommer 1994, 1995, Hillebrand and Sommer 1997).
