Numerous phytoplankton species in Lake Kasumigaura were shown to comprise the Spring bloom in 1980. The predominant phytoplankton species that appeared during the Spring bloom belonged to 28 genera. A few species among them increased at any time to form a phytoplankton pulse, but the few species of phytoplankters that comprised a phytoplankton pulse did not exclude completely other phytoplankters. During the Spring bloom, one pulse was replaced by another pulse composed of a new grouping of different species. Throughout these replacements by natural selection in the bloom were numerous other species by phytoplankters at levels of abundance somewhat less than those which formed phytoplankton pulse. © 1983.
