Shelf-basin gradients shape ecological phytoplankton niches and community composition in the coastal Arctic Ocean ( Beaufort Sea )

Abstract

The contiguous Arctic shelf is the green belt of the Arctic Ocean. Phytoplankton dynamics in this environment are driven by extreme physical gradients and by rapid climate change, which influence light and nutrient availability as well as the growth and ecological characteristics of phytoplankton. A large dataset collected across the Canadian Beaufort Shelf… (More)
