Competing effects of toxin-producing phytoplankton on overall plankton populations in the bay of Bengal.

Abstract:

The coexistence of a large number of phytoplankton species on a seemingly limited variety of resources is a classical problem in ecology, known as 'the paradox of the plankton'. Strong fluctuations in species abundance due to the external factors or competitive interactions leading to oscillations, chaos and short-term equilibria have been cited so far to explain multi-species coexistence and biodiversity of phytoplankton. However, none of the explanations has been universally accepted. The q...
