Species interaction networks are shaped by abiotic and biotic factors. Here, as part of the Tara Oceans project, we studied the photic zone interactome using environmental factors and organismal abundance profiles and found that environmental factors are incomplete predictors of community structure. We found associations across plankton functional types and phylogenetic groups to be nonrandomly distributed on the network and driven by both local and global patterns. We identified interactions… 

Diatoms Are Selective Segregators in Global Ocean Planktonic Communities

It is shown that only 13% of diatom pairwise associations are driven by environmental conditions; the vast majority are independent of abiotic factors, suggesting that their biogeography is constrained by top-down pressure.

Structure and function of the global ocean microbiome

This work identifies ocean microbial core functionality and reveals that >73% of its abundance is shared with the human gut microbiome despite the physicochemical differences between these two ecosystems.

Diatoms structure the plankton community based on selective segregation in the world’s ocean

It is shown that only 13% of diatom pairwise associations are driven by environmental conditions, whereas the vast majority are independent of abiotic factors, which indicates that their biogeography is constrained by top down pressure.

Patterns and ecological drivers of ocean viral communities

These investigations establish a global ocean dsDNA viromic data set with analyses supporting the seed-bank hypothesis to explain how oceanic viral communities maintain high local diversity.

Disentangling marine microbial networks across space

The results highlight the need to study the dynamic nature of plankton networks and the approach represents a step forward towards a better comprehension of the biogeography of microbial interactions across ocean regions and depth layers.

A family of interaction-adjusted indices of community similarity

It is argued that interaction-adjusted indices capture novel aspects of diversity outside the scope of traditional approaches, highlighting the biological significance of ecological association networks in the interpretation of community similarity.

Decoupling function and taxonomy in the global ocean microbiome

It is found that environmental conditions strongly influence the distribution of functional groups in marine microbial communities by shaping metabolic niches, but only weakly influence taxonomic composition within individual functional groups.

Metagenomic Approaches Highlight the Organization and Dynamics of Plankton at the Species Level

Plankton is composed of all organisms that drift along currents. The planktonic ecosystem is a complex system that groups together organisms interacting with each other and with their environment.

Quantifying Tradeoffs for Marine Viruses

This review addresses the question of how a trait-based approach can make contributions toward understanding marine virus ecology and reviews and synthesizes current knowledge on virus traits with a focus on quantifying the associated tradeoffs.

Environmental vulnerability of the global ocean plankton community interactome

This work leveraged Tara Oceans sampling to infer a global ocean cross-domain plankton co-occurrence network – the community interactome – and used niche modeling to assess its vulnerabilities to environmental change.

Top-down controls on bacterial community structure: microbial network analysis of bacteria, T4-like viruses and protists

It was found that virus–bacteria relationships were more cross-linked than protist–b bacteria relationships, suggestive of increased taxonomic specificity in virus– bacteria relationships and at monthly and seasonal timescales, viruses may be following their hosts more often than controlling host abundance.

The results show that the functional community composition derived from metagenomes is an important quantitative readout for molecular trait‐based biogeography and ecology.

Eukaryotic plankton diversity in the sunlit ocean

Diversity emerged at all taxonomic levels, both within the groups comprising the ~11,200 cataloged morphospecies of eukaryotic plankton and among twice as many other deep-branching lineages of unappreciated importance in plankton ecology studies.

Unveiling in situ interactions between marine protists and bacteria through single cell sequencing

The power of single cell sequencing to untangle ecological interactions between uncultured protists and prokaryotes is demonstrated and suggests a discovery of novel symbionts associated with Cercozoa and Chrysophyta cells.

An original mode of symbiosis in open ocean plankton

A widespread symbiotic association between Acantharia biomineralizing microorganisms that are abundant grazers in plankton communities, and members of the haptophyte genus Phaeocystis that are cosmopolitan bloom-forming microalgae is described.
