The present volume treats various approaches and recommendations for standardization of determinations of photosynthetic pigments, especially chlorophyll in phytoplankton. Standardization of methods in biological oceanography entails more difficulty than in other fields. Regional differences in abundance and composition of marine communities call for quite a considerable variety of methods when one is measuring standing crop and specific composition as well as productivity. The measuring of primary productivity directly or through estimation of the amount of photosynthetic pigments in the phytoplankton of a given body of water is one of the primary objectives of biological oceanography. Problems of standardization do not appear to be insurmountable in this respect, and standardized methods for comparison over a wide range in space and season are of particular interest. If data for regional charts were comparable, such charts, with regional distribution of photosynthetic pi.....
