Data from: Evidence of small-scale spatial structuring of phytoplankton alpha- and beta-diversity in the open ocean

Erik Askov Mousing, Katherine Richardson, Jørgen Bendtsen, Ivona Cetinić & Mary Jane Perry
Phytoplankton assemblages in the open ocean are usually assumed to be mixed on local scales unless large semi-permanent density discontinuities separating water masses are present. Recent modelling studies have, however, suggested that ephemeral submesoscale oceanographic features leading to only subtle density discontinuities may be important for controlling phytoplankton alpha- and beta-diversity patterns. Until now, no empirical evidence has been presented to support this hypothesis. Using hydrographic and taxonomic composition data collected near Iceland during the...
