AbstractIn what degree nearshore plankton communities constitute an independent and distinct assemblage from shelf assemblages is a challenging question. Obvious physical and chemical differences exist among both systems but, also, important exchange and interdependencies are depicted by physical forcing. Clues to answer this question can be inferred by analyzing the degree of similarity between both systems and their respective biological communities. We analyze similarities between samples collected in nearshore and shelf waters in Palma Bay during a sampling period extending from April to September 2014. Strong differences between plankton structure at both sites are interpreted on the basis of physical and chemical variations at each site and on the degree of exchange induced by coastal currents and thermocline erosion
