Parameters

Microzooplankton taxonomy-related biosurface area per unit volume of the water column; Microzooplankton taxonomy-related biomass expressed as carbon per unit volume of the water column; Microzooplankton taxonomic abundance in water bodies; Microzooplankton non taxonomy-related biomass expressed as carbon per unit volume of the water column; Microzooplankton generic abundance in water bodies; Microzooplankton grazing; Microzooplankton taxonomy-related biovolume per unit volume of the water column

Description 
Summary

The microzooplankton is composed of protozoa (e.g. ciliates and heterotrophic dinoflagellates) and the smaller developmental stages of the mesozooplankton. The microzooplankton is normally collected by water bottles together with the samples for phytoplankton.
