Picophytoplankton account for most of the marine (sub-)tropical phytoplankton biomass and primary productivity. The contribution to biomass among plankton functional types (PFTs) could shift with climate warming, in part as a result of different physiological responses to temperature. To model these responses, Eppley’s empirical relationships have been well established. However, they have not yet been statistically validated for individual PFTs. Here, we examine the physiological response of… CONTINUE READING
