We evaluated plankton trophic structure in a short-term temporal survey performed throughout a downwelling-upwelling cycle at the SE Brazilian coast. Size-fractioned phytoplankton biomass (PB), microzooplankton (MiZA) and mesozooplankton (MeZA) abundances along with pri- mary (PP) and bacterial production (BP) were estimated for 5 consecutive days at a fixed station in the Cabo Frio upwelling core area. During the downwelling period, the dominance of pico- and nanoplankton in PB, and higher BP… Expand
