The influence of micro-zooplankton on marine productivity
Entry ID: GLOBEC_055_UK_005

Abstract: Predatory microzooplankton are important components of planktonic food
webs as they provide a link for nutrients to pass up the food chain
through their ingestion of small phytoplankton and bacteria which are
