  1. 1. Nitrogen fixation among marine bacterioplankton

    Author : Kjärstin H. Boström; Lasse Riemann; Åke Hagström; Grieg Steward; Högskolan i Kalmar; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bacterioplankton; Nitrogen fixation; Bakterioplankton; Kvävefixering; Cyanobakterier; Kvävefixerande bakterier; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : While bacterioplankton indisputably control vital biogeochemical paths in the cycling of carbon and nutrients in the world’s oceans, our knowledge about the functional and genetic diversity of bacterioplankton communities is negligible. In this thesis, molecular and more traditional microbiological methods were used to study the specific function of N2-fixation and in a general sense diversity of marine bacterioplankton species.

  2. 2. Bacterioplankton population dynamics in a changing ocean

    Author : Markus V. Lindh; Jarone Pinhassi; Pierre Galand; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine microbiology; ecology; bacterioplankton; community composition; diversity; seasonality; biogeography; bimodal; metapopulation; community functioning; climate change; environmental disturbance;

    Abstract : Bacterioplankton is characterized by high diversity, short generation times and rapid turnover. Despite their small size, these numerous microorganisms are a fundamental piece of aquatic ecosystems by channeling carbon to higher trophic levels through dissolved organic matter utilization.

  3. 3. Allochthonous and autochthonous carbon sources of lake bacterioplankton

    Author : Emma Kritzberg; Enhet akvatisk ekologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; aquatic ecology; marine biology; Hydrobiology; bacterial community composition; bacterial growth efficiency; bacterioplankton; carbon subsidy; dissolved organic carbon; limnology;

    Abstract : Organic substrates for pelagic bacteria are derived from dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in the water column that originates either from primary production from within the lake itself (autochthonous), or import of organic matter from the terrestrial watershed (allochthonous production). This thesis addresses the utilization of allochthonous versus autochthonous carbon (C) sources by lake bacterioplankton. READ MORE

  4. 4. Temporal and spatial variation in the community composition of lake bacterioplankton

    Author : Eva S. Lindström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; bacterioplankton; freshwaters; 16S rDNA; DGGE; community composition; Biologi; Biology; Biologi; limnologi; Limnology;

    Abstract : Bacterioplankton are among the smallest and most abundant organisms in lake ecosystems. Due to the lack of relevant methods, the taxonomic composition of bacterioplankton has been studied less thoroughly than that of larger organisms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Substrate control of community composition and functional adaptation in marine bacterioplankton

    Author : Julie Dinasquet; Lasse Riemann; Edward F. DeLong; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine microbial ecology; bacterioplankton; community composition; functional adaptation; dissolved organic carbon; bottom-up and top down factors; ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi; food-webs; Southern-Ocean; Antarctica; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology;

    Abstract : A drop of sea-water is teeming with a million of bacteria, on which pelagic food-webs and biogeochemical cycles depend. These bacteria thrive on a wide range of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) compounds produced through biotic and abiotic processes. READ MORE
