Particles from both natural populations and culture mixtures are categorized into microautotroph and detritus/microheterotroph components based on size and chlorophyll autofluorescence. Subcomponents ofmicroautotroph pigment groups are possible by the addition of phycoerythrin autofluorescence measurements. Subcomponents of microautotrophs as "live" and "dead" cells are determined by the addition of the metabolic activity stain fluorescein diacetate (FDA). The detritus/microheterotroph fraction includes green-fluorescing cells, abundant in the Gulf of California, detritus, and bacteria. The relative contributions of icroautotrophs, microheterotrophs and detritus mustbe discerned in order to fully interpret beam attenuation and changes in beam attenuation.
