Supplementary Material

The supplementary files consist of Figure S1A which provides information related to presence/absence of phytoplankton genera encountered across all the three stations during the course of this study; Figure S1B represents a bootstrap consensus tree on NJ approach containing uncultured eukaryotic rbcL sequences generated from this study as well rbcL sequences from cultured and uncultured phytoplankton communities; Figure S2 depicts rarefaction curves for all the three rbcL clone libraries generated in this study; Table S1 Phytoplankton generic “presence-absence” profile for the study period (weekly). “+” indicate presence while “-” indicates absence of the studied phytoplankton genera.
