A variety of terms are used to describe phytoplankton cell size fractions in the fresh-water and marine literature. To eliminate misinterpretations, it is strongly suggested that a uniform terminology be adopted by limnologists and phycologists working in the Great Lakes. This terminology is in accord with S1 units of dimension and mass. Some examples of the importance of picoplankton are discussed. (Copyright (c) Internat. Assoc. Great Lakes Res., 1984.)
