AbstractThis dataset was acquired during the OSCAHR cruise to identify ultraplanktonic community structure in the North-Western Mediterranean in relation with hydrological characteristics. Six phytoplanktonic functional groups were identified using CytoSense (Automated flow cytometer). Quality control is made by the flow cytometer expert manually during the data processing
