ELENA LITCHMAN, in Evolution of Primary Producers in the Sea, Phytoplankton are major primary producers in the aquatic realm, responsible for almost half of global net primary production (Field et al. ).Their abundance and community structure directly impact higher trophic levels and key biogeochemical cycles. Phytoplankton are an extremely diverse, polyphyletic group that includes. Oct 09,  · Phytoplankton are microscopic marine algae. Phytoplankton is the base of several aquatic food webs. In a balanced ecosystem, they provide food for a wide range of sea creatures including whales, shrimp, snails, and jellyfish. Phytoplankton produce oxygen and contribute close to half of the total global oxygen supply. On the other side of the equation, phytoplankton absorb one third of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced globally, whether from our exhaled breath or by the combustion of fossil fuels. Phytoplankton play a pivotal role in the removal of CO2 from the.

Plankton form the base of the marine food web and respond rapidly to environmental changes. Local and large-scale changes in phytoplankton biomass and zooplankton abundance (beyond natural variation) were observed over the period –, providing a possible early warning of a wider change in the marine environment. Although the phytoplankton of the Red Sea has been studied since , our information is still inadequate and information is scattered; the last review of the plankton was done by Halim ().
