Abstract/Summary

This report considers the geographic and taxonomic spread of non-constitutive mixoplankton (NCM). NCM are mixoplankton (protists that are both phototrophic and phagotrophic) by virtue of acquired phototrophy; they acquire their potential for photosynthesis from their prey. NCM are quantitatively important members of the protistan communities in Arctic, temperate and Subtropical waters. Generally, ciliates were the quantitatively dominant NCM across climate zones, with NCM dinoflagellates and amoebic were of less importance.
