  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Effect of environmental factors on bacterioplankton community composition, diversity and functionality

    Author : Johanna Sjöstedt; Lasse Riemann; Silke Langenheder; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine microbiology; bacterioplankton; community composition; diversity; functionality; environmental factors; disturbance; distribution; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology;

    Abstract : The ocean covers more than 70 % of the Earth surface and represents the largest ecosystem on Earth. Bacteria are an important part of the marine food web not only in remineralisation but also since they utilize dissolved organic matter (DOM) and make the energy available to higher trophic levels.

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Composition and dynamics of the bacterial community in aerobic granular sludge reactors

    Author : Enikö Barbara Szabo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; qPCR; sequencing batch reactors; microbial community composition; T-RFLP; functional groups; Illumina MiSeq; wastewater; aerobic granular sludge; nitrogen removal; population dynamics;

    Abstract : The aerobic granular sludge (AGS) technology is probably the future standard for wastewater treatment, due to its low footprint and low energy consumption. Although achieving granulation is usually not a challenge anymore, our understanding of the community assembly during start-up, and of the microbial ecology of these reactors in general, is incomplete.

  5. 5. 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.
