Abstract In most aquatic systems, phytoplankton organisms are the most important primary producers. Thus, any alterations in the phytoplankton community have strong effects on the whole system. Apart from the fulfillment of basic requirements such as temperature, dissolved oxygen, ion composition and pH, zooplankton abundance and community structure depend mainly on the amount and usability of phytoplankton as the main source of nutrition. Conversely, effects of zooplankton on the phytoplankton community can be found - feeding types, selection (cell size and shape) and release of nutrients - which can strongly alter phytoplankton abundance and diversity.
