INTRODUCTION
Microorganisms dominate the abundance, diver-
sity and metabolic activity of the ocean and regulate
important biogeochemical pathways that involve the
global carbon cycle (Azam & Malfatti 2007). Conse-
quently, microbial processes are represented in
numerical models used to analyze global carbon
cycle­climate feedbacks and how marine eco-
systems respond to environmental gradients in e.g.
temperature, stratification, and nutrient regimes
(Fasham et al. 1990, Boyd & Doney 2002, Schmittner
et al. 2005, Behrenfeld et al. 2006, Sarmiento & Gru-
ber 2006). Concerns have been raised against the
aggregation of the microbial diversity into a few
functional groups in such models (Anderson 2005,
