dc.description.abstract Phytoplankton community composition in the Southern Ocean (SO) determines levels of primary production, which support marine ecosystems and export of material to the deep sea. Nanoplankton (cell diameters 2-20 μm) are poorly resolved by traditional microscopy, and it is becoming apparent that unknown diversity and ecosystem functionality may be contained in this size class: for example, small diatoms (< 10 μm) appear widespread in the SO, and may limit our understanding of the response of phytoplankton communities to climate change. en_ZA
