Table S4. Abundance and biomass data of the total ciliate assemblage and the relative contribution(%) of heterotrophs and mixotrophs from Oceanic protists with different forms of acquired phototrophy display contrasting biogeographies and abundance

Results from the bibliographic survey. Abundance and biomass data of the total ciliate assemblage and the relative contribution (%) of heterotrophs and mixotrophs (GNCMs and red-pigmented Mesodinium spp.). Period of the year (season), sampling depth (punctual or range), and type of study (fm – fluorescence microscopy or lm – light microscopy) are also given.
