The sea-ice biota of the Greenland Sea pack ice / C. Friedrich, Rolf R. Gradinger, M. Spindler.

Title: The sea-ice biota of the Greenland Sea pack ice / C. Friedrich, Rolf R. Gradinger, M. Spindler.
Author(s): Friedrich, C.
Gradinger, Rolf R.
Spindler, M.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Cambridge: Sea Ice Group, Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge
In: ESOP. European Subpolar Ocean Programme. Sea ice - ocean interactions. Volume 2. (1996.),
Abstract: Studied the abundance and biomass of the sea-ice biota in summer and late autumn during two cruises to the Greenland Sea. The diverse community inside the drifting pack-ice floes mainly consisted of bacteria, photo- and heterotrophic protists and several metazoan taxa. Diatoms were the main primary producers, but flagellated groups significantly contributed to the algal biomass. Dominant metazoans were nematodes and turbellarians which showed high salinity tolerance. Potential ingestion rates of metazoans were of the same order of magnitude as primary production estimates. Therefore it is assumed that grazing has the potential to control biomass accumulation of primary producers inside the sea ice. During ice formation, selective incorporation of protists into grease and pancake ice occurred with pennate diatoms exhibiting the highest enrichment factors.
