Hourly division rates vs. cell size.
(A) Phytoplankton size distribution overlaid with hourly division rates (red curve; error bars indicate one standard deviation based on two technical and two biological replicates). Division rate and size distribution at t = 15 (blue box) and t = 35 (gold box). (B) Hourly division rates vs. mean cell size. (C) Cell size distribution at time t = 15 (blue) and t = 35 (gold). (D) hourly division rate at time t vs. mean cell size at time t − 6.
