Salinity and diatoms.


T. V. Desikachary and V. N. R. Rao

Salinity has long been recognised as an important factor in the distribution of Diatoms. Studies on Cyclotella meneghiniana have shown that salinity can play a significant role in some aspects of the life of this diatom. It is suggested that variations in salinity in natural environments can also influence the productivity of diatom populations.
