Distance-based redundancy analysis (dbRDA) plot of phytoplankton assemblages. Vectors of abiotic variables (temp: temperature; sal: salinity; precip: total precipitations in the three days preceding the sampling; Isonzo: Isonzo River discharge in the seven days preceding the sampling; DIN: dissolved inorganic nitrogen concentration; PO4: phosphate concentration; Si(OH)4: silicate concentration) affect the construction of the constrained ordination picture; the longer the vector, the bigger the effect of the variable.
