OB14F:
The Role of Cell Size and Plankton Community Structure As Drivers of Ocean Metabolism Posters

Session ID#: 85264

Session Description:
The size of living cells sets critical bounds for resource acquisition and the metabolic rate of organisms. Building on this central ecological tenet, allometric patterns of distinct plankton classes within an ecosystem as well as broad spatial patterns in community size structure have been used to understand and model ecosystem structure and function in the ocean.  As technologies for assaying cell size, particle size distributions, plankton diversity, and plankton metabolism have advanced in the past decades, new insights into relationships among size and integrated community function have emerged. This session invites submissions from observationalists, theoreticians, and modelers from a range of disciplines. The goal of the session is to highlight work aimed at improving our understanding of metabolic scaling in the ocean and how these patterns can inform our ability to predict and model plankton diversity and productivity.
