Phytoplankton is an important microbial component in many ecosystems, and thus, knowing the predictive variables of its distribution is very valuable. In this study, we evaluated the roles of niche-based and spatial processes on phytoplankton communities of nine lakes in southern Brazil (spatial distance covered of 220 km).
