Spatial variability of plankton biomass, community composition and size structure was investigated across a strong frontal transition (A-Front) in the southern California Current Ecosystem in October 2008. Depth profiles were taken across a 25-km transect of nine stations sampled semi-synoptically during one night and for 3 days following drifter arrays in the adjacent water masses. Community compositions are compared based on analyses by digital epifluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry and… CONTINUE READING
