- ... Coccolithophorids are one of the dominant groups of marine phytoplankton. They are found in large numbers throughout the surface euphotic zone of the ocean, and are able to form large-scale blooms that persist for long periods of time. Coccolithophorid cells are covered by species-specific calcium carbonate crystals of various structures. In the process of calcification in coccolithophorids, Ca²⁺ ...
