The roles of inorganic nutnents and grazing by crustaceans and microprotozoans as factors shaping the planktonic community of the Gulf of Finland were studied in a 6 d laboratory experiment. The removal of metazoans > l00 pin greatly enhanced microprotozoan growth during the last 3 d of the experiment. When inorganic N and P additions were combined with the removal of metazoans, the growth of protozoans was stimulated even further. On the other hand, addition of metazoans >200 pm kept the… Expand
