Chemical ecology of the marine plankton

Author affiliations

Abstract

Covering: January 2015 through December 2017

This review focuses on recent studies on the chemical ecology of planktonic marine ecosystems, with the objective of presenting a comprehensive overview of new findings in the field in the time period covered. In order to highlight the role of chemically mediated interactions in the marine plankton this review has been organized by ecological concepts starting with intraspecific communication, followed by interspecific interactions (including facilitation and mutualism, host–parasite, allelopathy, and predator–prey), and finally the effects of plankton secondary metabolites on community and ecosystem-wide interactions.
