Short summary
Recent evidence suggests that competition between phytoplankton groups is significantly affected by changing climatic factors. We investigated the effects of phytoplankton community composition on spring bloom carbon flows. The comparison of differing communities showed that community structure significantly affected C accumulation parameters. Climate-driven changes in phytoplankton dominance patterns will have far-reaching consequences for major biogeochemical cycles.
