I will rather define it in the following way:

Nanophytoplankton correspond to the autotrophic fraction of the nanoplankton, which size fluctuates between 2 ­and 20 µm.

This does not include aquatic plants, neither algae, protists or cyanobacteria are plants (one example could be some autotrophic dinoflagellates). By the other hand, nanoplankton is part of the plankton, being just an operational separation/classification/division according to size.

Yup, makes sense. --Epipelagic (talk) 23:38, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
