Blanes Bay Seasonality Scope

Innovative Training Network
Try It Out
The Blanes Bay Microbial Observatory (BBMO) is a coastal monitoring station located near the city of Blanes in the NW Mediterranean Sea (41°40′N, 2°48′E). The station is sampled monthly since 2001 with a focus on the abundance, diversity and activity of marine microorganisms.
Picoeukaryotes dataset
Picoeukaryotes, protists between 0.8 and 3 µm in cell size, are integral members of marineecosystems. Here we provide a tool to investigate the seasonality of picoeukaryotic taxa during a monthly survey of 10 years. The diversity dataset derives from environmental V4-18S rDNA sequences (Giner et al. 2019), and can be queried via BLAST or by specifying the taxa of interest.
