Short summary
In this work the effects of warming on phytoplankton communities was investigated. An indoor experiment was performed in which water from a Mediterranean lagoon was incubated at different temperatures. A shift towards smaller taxa resulted in a higher total biomass but lower chlorophyll a concentrations at the highest temperature. This study contributes to the knowledge on the responses of phytoplankton to warming, which is still scarce in Mediterranean marine and brackish environments.
