We compiled the most comprehensive data set of phytoplankton and other marine protists in terms of sizes, shapes, genus, and species names. Samples were obtained from seven globally distributed marine areas: Baltic Sea, North Atlantic (Scotland), Mediterranean Sea (Greece and Turkey), Indo-Pacific (the Maldives), South-western Pacific (Australia), Southern Atlantic (Brazil). See details in Ryabov et al Ecology Letters 'Shape matters: the relationship between cell geometry and diversity in phytoplankton'
