AbstractDiatoms are one of the most successful phytoplankton groups, playing a key role in global carbon cycles. They proliferate in well-mixed, nutrient rich waters by rapid asexual cell divisions, constituting the trophic base of most productive ecosystems. However, sexual reproduction occurring after several cell divisions is of paramount importance for the persistence of diatoms over generations. Pairing for sexual reproduction in an inherently turbulent and threedimensional system, such as the marine environment, is a difficult task for non-motile organisms with scarce control of their orientation.
