Abundance, carbon biomass and composition of picoplankton along a transect (from the Pearl River estuary to Dongsha Island) in the northern South China Sea were measured by flow cytom-etry (FCM) ; and the vertical structure, composition variation, relationship between heterotrophic and au-totrophic picoplankton as well as the controlling mechanism of diel variation were studied. Results showed that along the horizontal direction, both Synechococcus (SYN) and picoeukaryote (PEUK) were highest in abundance an...
