Global patterns of planktonic diversity are mainly determined by the dispersal of propagules with ocean currents. However, the role that abundance and body size plays in determining spatial patterns of diversity remains unclear. Here, we analyze spatial community structure - beta-diversity - for several planktonic and nektonic organisms spanning from prokaryotes to small mesopelagic fishes collected during the Malaspina 2010 Expedition. beta-diversity were compared to surface ocean transit times derived from a global circulation model,...
