Abstract. We present a collection of data relating to microzooplankton physiological traits collected from the literature. We define microzooplankton as unicellular zooplankton (protozoans). The collected data mostly relates to grazing rates collected either in the field or through laboratory experiments. There is an equal number of grazing and growth rate measured through laboratory experiments and a smaller number of Gross Growth Efficiency (GGE), respiration and egestion values. Although the collected data showed inconsistencies in units, or gaps in knowledge of microzooplankton (e.g. effect of prey nutrient content, combined measurement of grazing and growth), they also contained information on microzooplankton functional response, and how some external factors affect them (e.g. prey concentration, prey offered, temperature).
