DIAZ-RAMOS, José Rafael. Indice de la microflora marina de Venezuela: diatomeas, dinoflagelados y cocolitofóridos. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2000, vol.48, n.4, pp.897-918. ISSN 0034-7744.

The marine phytoplankton of Venezuela has been studied on a regular basis since the mid 20th century. However, a species checklist that can be used as a framework for taxonomic studies is lacking. In this paper, an index of the marine microflora of Venezuela is presented for the first time. The index includes only those diatoms (89 centric and 186 pennate species), dinoflagellates (eight naked and 154 thecate species) and coccolithophores (24 especies) for which formal diagnosis and illustrations (drawings and/or photographs) have been reported in the scientific literature (journals and/or first degree or master's theses). It is ordered alphabetically according to class, order, family, and species. It includes the author (s) of the taxa.

Keywords : checklist; Venezuelan phytoplankton; diatoms; dinoflagellates; coccolithophores.
