Role of eukaryote pico- and nanoplankton in the biogeochemical processes of the deep sea.
Entry ID: Deep_Sea_Protists

Abstract: In this project we investigate the distribution and activity of the smallest eukaryotes of the deep sea in order to understand their ecology and contribution to biogeochemical processes. Using fluorescence in situ hybridization, protists in the pico- and nanoplankton size range (i.e., primarily heterotrophic flagellates) are enumerated and classified into major taxonomic groups.

A major focus is ... View entire text
