By Jürgen Overbeck, Ryszard J. Chrost

Aquatic microbial ecology, a growing to be interdisciplinary box, has turn into more and more compartmentalized in recent times. the purpose of this quantity is to suggest a framework for biochemical and molecular methods, that are hired ever extra broadly in reports of aquatic microbial groups and atmosphere functioning. The booklet offers state-of-the-art functions of contemporary molecular study recommendations to a number of themes in ectoenzymes microbial carbon metabolism bacterial inhabitants dynamics RNA chemotaxonomy of microbial groups plasmids and edition to environmental stipulations. Written for limnologists, marine biologists, and all researchers drawn to environmental microbiology and molecular elements of ecology, this quantity will supply a stimulating creation to this rising field.

The estimates of RDOM utilization indicated that from 40 to 75% and 25 to 60% of the used RDOM was respired and incorporated, respectively, into bacterial cells in the water column. The analysis of the total DOC present in lake water, however, did not show marked vertical variation, in comparison to RDOM and PhOM. 0 mg organic C I-I) within the water column. Thus a close relationship between heterotrophic bacteria and RDOM, but not with DOC, was observed.
