Zooplankton grazing and growth: Scaling within the 2‐2,‐μm body size range
In order to study the size dependency of grazing and growth rates in zooplankton, data wcrc collected from laboratory studies in the literature, covering both limnic and marinc organisms. Data wereExpand

The size ratio between planktonic predators and their prey
Size selectivity spectra of 28 planktonic predators from 18 studies in the literature are compared. The linear size ratio between predators and their optimal prey is 1 : 1 for a dinoflagellate, 3 : 1Expand

Prey size selection, feeding rates and growth dynamics of heterotrophic dinoflagellates with special emphasis on Gyrodinium spirale
The relationship between size and growth rate in heterotrophic dinoflagellates (collected from the Kattegat, Denmark during 1989 and 1990) was studied. In addition, prey size selection, feeding ratesExpand

Effect of pH on growth and domoic acid production by potentially toxic diatoms of the genera Pseudo-nitzschia and Nitzschia
The effect of elevated pH on growth and on production of the neurotoxin domoic acid was studied in selected diatoms belonging to the genera Pseudo-nitzschia and Nitzschia. Growth of most of the 11Expand

Effect of high pH on the growth and survival of marine phytoplankton: implications for species succession
Ten years of pH measurements (1990 to 1999) in the surface waters of the eutrophic Mariager Fjord, Denmark, revealed profound seasonal variation. Typically, pH was relatively constant around 8 fromExpand

The red tide dinoflagellate Alexandrmm tamarense: effects on behaviour and growth of a tintinnid ciliate
The effect was studied of the red tide dinoflagellate Alexandrium tamarense (= Gonyaulax excavata, G. tamarensis) on the behaviour and growth of the tintinnid ciliate Favella ehrenbergii. Six clonesExpand

Prey size selection, grazing and growth response of the small heterotrophic dinoflagellate Gymnodinium sp. and the ciliate Balanion comatum--a comparative study
Prey selectivity, growth and feeding responses were studied in the cillate Balanion comaturn (17 pm) and the heterotroph~c dinoflagellate Gjmnodinium sp. (7 pm). Almost identical prey size spectraExpand

Allelopathy in the prymnesiophyte Chrysochromulina polylepis: effect of cell concentration, growth phase and pH
Seven species (8 isolates) of dinoflagellates were exposed to a dense Chrysochromulina polylepis suspension. All species (with 1 exception) lost their motility, indicating that C. polylepis pro-Expand

Misuse of the phytoplankton-zooplankton dichotomy : the need to assign organisms as mixotrophs within plankton functional types
The classic portrayal of plankton is dominated by phytoplanktonic primary producersand zooplanktonic secondary producers. In reality, many if not most planktontraditionally labelled as phytoplanktoExpand
