Among-lake and within-lake variations of autotrophic pico- and nanoplankton
biomass in six Quebec lakes.
(N = 9)] are the dominant species, whereas, nanoplankton
is primarily composed of Chrysophyceae and Cryptophyceae (Nienhuis and Guerrero-Caballero 1985; Garate-Lizarraga and Siqueiros-Beltrones 1998).
Key words: Bacterioplankton, picoplankton, nanoplankton
, vertical-seasonal distribution, oceanic waters, Cuba.
The density of phytoplankton populations (microplankton and nanoplankton
) in the photic zone is usually between 10 and 1,000 cells per milliliter.
"That larvaceans should have solved the problem so efficiently makes one marvel all the more at these unusual animals." Larvacean filters coccolithophores and noflagellates, small organisms that make up the nanoplankton
; few animals but larvaceans are able to capture and feed on these dwarfs.
It has been found that ciliates consume about 20% of the standing stock of nanoplankton
and almost 100% of the biomass production of bacteria during the growing season.

The detection of Chl-a values in the Dam's hypolimnion under low-light conditions (<1% [I.sub.0]) was consistent with the simultaneous counts of autofluorescent cells in the size of nanoplankton
(HakspielSegura, 2005; Hakspiel-Segura et al., 2015).
(e.g., amphora species and Navicular species) were documented most abundant species.

Yet more recent research has shown the important role of the smallest components of the plankton, the nanoplankton
and the picoplankton, in Antarctica's marine ecosystems.

in Georgia coastal waters.
The size of plankton is also a limitation sampling by VOR, because the size mesh and pico and nanoplankton
rarely were collected, so, the community of plankton predominant is microphytoplankton (dinoflagellates, diatoms, cyanobacteria), copepods (zooplankton) and tintinnids (Ciliophora) (Table 2).
