Abstract/ Summary

This field 50-leaf guide was created for the citizen volunteers who provide a first-alert system to the Maine Department of Marine Resources by watching for the presence of potentially toxic phytoplankton along the coast. The waterproof cards (held in a three-ring binder) provide color images from light microscopes at 200X or 400X, as well as identifying characteristics, natural history facts, and known impacts of 22 types of phytoplankton. A glossary, size chart, bibliography, and a brief about zooplankton are also included.
