Description 
Summary

The MATER-Phyto dataset is based on samples collected at 11 stations (spring 1997 and autumn 1997) and 6 stations in spring 1998 in the North and the South Aegean Sea. Samples were collected from standard depths (1, 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 75, 100, 120 m) in the euphotic zone. The dataset includes 260 samples of total chlorophyll, 260 samples of total primary production and 156 samples of phytoplankton species composition and abundance. Additionally, the dataset includes samples of size fractionated chlorophyll and primary production.
