Relation between biomass and body weight of plankton in a steady state oceanic ecosystem l

Abstract

In the size range from lO-4 to 10’ pg (carbon) body weight, the biomass of plankton in the euphotic layer of the North Pacific Central Gyre decreases as an allometric function of body weight. Even in a steady state ecosystem such as that analyzed here, there is variability in space and time; this suggests that one must be careful in extrapolating the… (More)
