Small-scale water movements in pelagic systems constitute the proximal physical framework in which plankton has evolved. The size and displacement capacities of plankton (by swimming, floating or sinking) overlap with qualitative discontinuities in the small-scale motions of water, and the effects of these motions on diffusion of substances and particles. It is argued in this paper that this overlap-ping could be the basis for understanding different ecological behaviour and adaptive pathways in the diverse phylogenetic groups of plankton. The scales of turbulence relative to organism body size determine the "hydrodynamic weather" to which organisms are exposed. The espe-cially small organisms undergo laminar shear, larger ones can swim between different eddy sizes depending on their displacement capac-ities. This latter fact confers to some organisms great opportunities for behavioural adaptations, which increases the prey encounter taking advantage of the small-scale structure in the water column. Better understanding of the small-scale hydrodynamic environment, con-sidering intermittency, buoyancy-conditioned mixing, and coherent structures, and its description with statistics that are directly appli-cable to interactions between plankton organisms, may provide new clues, in the form of "hydrodynamic climates", for understanding the apparently paradoxically high diversity of plankton.
