Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In near-surface waters of the neritic zone, the fragile aggregate material called "marine snow" is enriched by a variety of planktonic organisms and detrital products of plankton. Here marine snow is a source of patchiness and taxonomic diversity for microplankton populations and is a likely food resource and recycling agent for fecal particles.
