Short summary
Using the latest earth system models, we find that shifts in nutrient and light availability with future climate warming drive latitudinally banded changes in Southern Ocean phytoplankton distributions, which have the potential to significantly alter nutrient cycling as well as higher trophic level productivity throughout the global ocean. Spatial patterns in the modelled mechanisms driving these predicted phytoplankton trends qualitatively agree with recent observations.
