Welcome to the illustrated checklist of phytoplankton in the Skagerrak-Kattegat (including heterotrophic flagellates). The aim of this checklist is to provide up to date information on phytoplankton and heterotrophic protists found in the Skagerrak and the Kattegat, N. Atlantic Ocean. The area is situated east of the North Sea. The database is, and will always be, under construction. Today 282 species sheets are complete. Unfortunately no funding has been available for keeping the site up to date after 1998. However, this may change and in the future we hope to cover most species found in the lists through a co-operative effort with scientists in the region and elsewhere.Contributions and comments on the content are welcome. This WWW-database was created by Mats Kuylenstierna and Bengt Karlson. It has the following parts:
