Nature Eco Evo

August 2018 cover

Marine plankton communities contain a huge number of distinct species, such as these protists observed by the Tara Oceans expedition at the ocean surface. Although the composition of such communities varies considerably from place to place, the decay in abundance of the rare species that comprise 99% of local richness follows the same power law everywhere.
