Can functional units of protozoan periphytons be used to evaluate ecological quality status under harmful algal blooms in marine ecosystems?
Based on biological traits the ecological quality status (EQS) under the pressure of two harmful algal bloom (HAB) species was evaluated using functional units (FUs) of protozoan periphytons. Five treatments with different concentrations of Alexandrium tamarense and Gymnodinium catenatum were designed as100, 102, 103, 104 and 105 cell ml− 1. A total of 21 FUs were identified from 25 test protozoan species. Vagile algivores with large sizes showed a decreasing trend towards high concentrations,doi:10.21203/rs.3.rs-483209/v1 fatcat:haehmtpxpnf4dfcz7hmpyajvei
