The following tables are supplemental material for Ibarbalz et al. (2019), Global Trends in Marine Plankton Diversity across Kingdoms of Life. Details for Version 2: -More sample identifiers -More environmental features -Correction for sample TARA_B110000093 that should have been labeld as TARA_175, layer: MIX (10-100m) -Note change of order for sample TARA_P100003697 -XLSX format Sample-Provenance-Environment-Shannon-index_v2.xlsx -Shannon index for marine plankton samples (Tara Oceans expedition) derived from a combination of protocols, depths, size fractions and functional/taxonomic groups. -Sample identifiers, including ENA accession numbers for molecular samples. Sample-Provenance-Environment-Flow-cytometry_v2.xlsx -Samples analysed by flow cytometry (FACScalibur Flow Cytometer); data split in six groups according to size and optical variables: high/low DNA content prokaryotes, Prochlorococcus, Synechococcus, and two groups of picoeukaryotes. Here we report the abundances (cells/ml) per group and per sample from different water layers. Data from the Arctic Ocean is released for the first time.
