Functional traits in phytoplankton ecology

The term “trait” appeared very early in the biological literature and has been used as a proxy of organismal performance (Darwin 1859). Recently the traits are defined as morphological, physiological, phenological characteristics that can be measured or identified at the individual level (Violle et al. 2007). The recognition that the selection which determines the composition of the assemblages acts on traits rather than on species inspired the development of the trait-based approaches in the ecology.
