Distribution of Phytoplankton Species at the Western Margin of the North Atlantic Ocean
Large changes in the phytoplankton occurred across the Continental Shelf of the southern United States, contrasting with small changes observed in semienclosed regions within the Bahama archipelago. It is contended that both kinds of change are due to the isolation of the environment at the shoreward edge of the Continental Shelf and in the embayments in the Bahamas from the environment of the open Atlantic Ocean.
