Counting Phytoplankton

meAmy Stephens

There was definitely a huge learning curve to be able to identify all the varying genera of phytoplankton in our mesocosms but identifying plankton has become my favorite part of my project thus far. Every individual cell is so intricate, and they come in various shapes and sizes. Since this part of my project is not often seen, I figured I’d share a few photos of what I’m seeing.
