Abstract
An equation describing the dynamical behaviour of hytoplankton cells is considered in which the effects of cell division and aggregration are incorporated by coupling the coagulationfragmentation equation with the McKendrickvon Foerster renewal model of an agestructured population. Under appropriate conditions on the model parameters, the associated initial boundary value problem is shown to be well posed in a physically relevant Banach space.
