Abstract: Phytoplankton are the most important primary producers in the world’s oceans and coastal waters, accounting for nearly half of the global net primary production. Although they are such important organisms, little is known about the ecology and dynamics of phytoplankton. The importance of phytoplankton resting stages, the coupling between cells in the sediment and watermass and how environmental changes affect the population structure is uncertain. The record of a specific species in a given ... more
