Abstract

The dynamic stability of the pigment complex of sea phytoplankton communities is shown. Characteristic regularity in relationship of basic chlorophyll а and additional b and с to their sum was revealed as A:B:С index, where A=а/(a+b+с), B=b/(a+b+с), С=с/(a+b+с) in percentage terms. It does not depend on the size or biomass of phytoplankton but reflects species composition, variants of metabolism and “maturity” of the plant community.

Keywords

phytoplankton (phytoplankton community), pigment complex (chlorophylls), chlorophyll relations.
