This dataset combines Tables 1 and 2 from Edwards et al (2015) Ecology. Cell volume measurements for nearly all species in the nutrient trait data set is also available, see Table 3. Nutrient utilization traits. Each row presents a single species/strain from one publication. If multiple traits were measured on that strain in that publication, they are all listed in the same row. If the same strain was tested at multiple temperatures, the measurements from each temperature are recorded in different rows. Temperature of the experiment, irradiance, day length, taxon, system (freshwater/marine), isolate ID, cell volume, C per cell, and citation source are all included as well.

These data were obtained from on 2016-01-21.
