Abstract

•First sensitivity study on size scaling of physiological traits in phytoplankton.•Mean cell size of diatoms is maximal at intermediate nutrient replenishment periods.•Large diatoms emerge at intermediate mixing intervals due to their low subsistence demand.•High μmax of small cells is critical for their success at too (un)stable environments.•Non-uniform scaling in μmax helps preventing dominance of non-viable small diatoms.
