Egyptian plankton samples for revision as to its phytoplankton content. First samples are dated in 1933 owned by Prof. Steuer, while the other samples are from the Nile area and collected by Dr. Hans Amberg, in 1904. The samples that come from the large district of the Nile prove that the Melosira in Prof. Steuer's material represents a real phytoplankton component of Nile water and not merely a passive swimming organism.

Additional Metadata

Apart from teh samples of 1933, there are samples of Nile owned by H. Bachmann and collected by Dr Hans Amberg, in 1904. The equipment used is a very small net. The samples are from the following stations: (1) Assuan, 1904/02/09; (2) Above Edfu, 1904/02/08; (3) Dendera, 1904/02/04; (4) Assiut, 1904/02/02; (5) Above Fashn, 1904/01/30; (6) Cairo, 1904/04/08 and (7) Bedreshein, 1904/01/29. The samples 1,2,3 contain the genus Melosira and were very frequently. The samples 4,6 and 7 conatin Melosira granulata var. augustissima and the typical Melosira crucipunctata. These samples showed hardly any other phytoplankton. One may mention: Pediastrum clathratum, with varieties, Surirella splendida, Eudorina elegans.
