Adv. 2020; 6: eabb1611) and its effects on the determination of the sinks concerned.

Heidi and Sirpa have completed the Hearts update and the HELCOM PEG BVOL biovolym update presentation introduces the new taxons included in the list.

In addition, Sirpa Lehtinen and Kristiina Vuorio will tell about the algae monitoring in summer 2020. Raino-Lars Albert and Jere Laine present the club's new website, and Tore Lindholm talks about an armoured linen deposit off the River Aura (Dinoflagellate bloom in the Aura River Mouth).

Invitation to remote meeting 20.10.2020

Welcome to participate in a remote meeting of the Phytoplankton Society on Tuesday 20 October. from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Due to the coronavirus situation, the armoured line workshop planned for the autumn will be postponed. In addition, it is currently better to hold meetings remotely. That is why we are holding two shorter remote meetings. The first remote meeting is already in a couple of weeks on Tuesday 20 October. between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. and the second in November, according to the agreement, either on Thursday 19 November. or Friday 20 November There is no entry fee for either remote meeting.

These meetings are intended to be free-form and can be attended without prior registration. The meetings offer members the opportunity to discuss topical issues, watch phytoplankton photos or videos, and discuss possible configuration problems, among other things. Everyone who participates in the meeting can share content for others to see.

The october meeting is expected to review the club’s new website (http://homepage.kasviplanktonopas.net/). Members are happy to receive feedback and thoughts on the content and structure of the pages. If kristiina tells about the algae monitoring in summer 2020.

At the November meeting, Heidi will discuss the 2020 HELCOM PEG BVOL biovolym update and a new interesting article (Altenburger et al. 2020: Dimorphism in cryptophytes – The case of Teleaulax amphioxeia/Plagioselmis prolonga and its ecological implications. – Sci. Adv. 2020; 6: eabb1611) and its effects on the determination of the sinks concerned.

At both meetings, all interested party shareholders have the opportunity to give a short presentation (max. 15-20 min) e.g. interesting observation or a new added taxon. Any presentations can be submitted to the Board of Directors in advance.

Summer 2020 risk assessment completed

On Thursday, 4 June 2020, a risk assessment of summer blue algae blooms for the neighbouring regions was published:

The risk of blue algae blooms in Finnish seas, as in last year, is considerable or moderate – the final situation will be determined by the summer weather

https://www.syke.fi/en-FI/News/Releases/Sinilevakukintojen_riski_on_Suomen_meria(57552)

So summer is here again and the blue algae announcement has started as it:

National algae review 4.6.2020: In some areas of the sea blue-green, there are hardly any blue algae observations on the lakes

https://www.syke.fi/en-FI/Ajankohtaista/Levatilannekatsaukset/Valtakunnallinen_levakatsaus_462020_Meri(57514)

THE REST INFORMATION OF THE SEA is happy to receive algae hats – even zero-hats! – even by phone or email. Current algae managers can be found at the bottom of the most recent algae overview (see link above). We would also like to encourage the use of the Observation Transmitter app (see link above).

KasPer 2013 training material

On 14-15 May 2013, the Finnish Phytoplanktonseura ry organised Tvärminne for KasPer training at the Zoological Station. The seminar focused on issues related to the sampling, analysis, identification, use of phytoplankton and perifyton/latents in the classification of ecological status and interpretation of results. The trainers at the event are Marko Järvinen (phytoplankton), biologist Satu Maaria Karjalainen (perifyton/hiding), researcher Kristiina Vuorio (identification of blue algae) and researcher Sirpa Lehtinen (Baltic phytoplankton). The integration material can be downloaded here:
