Predicted niches for the categories in Reynolds C-S-R’ model in nutrient versus light space. C-strategists are adapted to conditions rich in both nutrients and light (e.g., Coscinodiscus); S-strategists are adapted to conditions of low nutrient availability but high light intensity (e.g., Trichodesmium); R-strategists are adapted to conditions of high nutrient availability but low light intensity (e.g.,  Leptocylindrus).
