This dataset reports initial abundance and biomass of size classes of prey items as measured by Coulter Counter, flow cytometer, inverted and epi-fluorescence microscopes and as chlorophyll concentration. These data are published in MEPS (2017) and are the result of M. Jungbluth's Ph.D. thesis work.
