Mixotrophic haptophytes are key bacterial grazers in oligotrophic coastal waters
Grazing rate estimates indicate that approximately half of the bacterivory in oligotrophic oceans is due to mixotrophic flagellates (MFs). However, most estimations have considered algae as a singleExpand

Significant year-round effect of small mixotrophic flagellates on bacterioplankton in an oligotrophic coastal system
The seasonal variation in the grazing effect of mixotrophic flagellates on bacterioplankton was assessed during an annual cycle in an oligotrophic coastal station in the northwest Mediterranean Sea.Expand

Factors Controlling the Year-Round Variability in Carbon Flux Through Bacteria in a Coastal Marine System
Data from several years of monthly samplings are combined with a 1-year detailed study of carbon flux through bacteria at a NW Mediterranean coastal site to delineate the bacterial role in carbon useExpand

Grazing rates and functional diversity of uncultured heterotrophic flagellates
Aquatic assemblages of heterotrophic protists are very diverse and formed primarily by organisms that remain uncultured. Thus, a critical issue is assigning a functional role to this unknown biota.Expand

Abundance and distribution of picoplankton in tropical, oligotrophic Lake Kivu, eastern Africa
SUMMARY 1. We used flow cytometry to characterize freshwater photosynthetic picoplankton (PPP) and heterotrophic bacteria (HB) in Lake Kivu, one of the East-African great lakes. Throughout threeExpand

Metabolic diversity of heterotrophic bacterioplankton over winter and spring in the coastal Arctic Ocean.
Metabolic diversity of heterotrophic bacterioplankton was tracked from early winter through spring with Biolog Ecoplates under the seasonally ice covered arctic shelf in the Canadian Arctic (FranklinExpand

Protist Herbivory: a Key Pathway in the Pelagic Food Web of Lake Tanganyika
Herbivory and bacterivory by phagotrophic protists were estimated in the southern basin of the oligotrophic Lake Tanganyika at different seasons (in the rainy season in February–March 2007 and in theExpand

Typology of lentic water bodies at Potter Peninsula (King George Island, Antarctica) based on physical-chemical characteristics and phytoplankton communities
Abstract During austral summer 1995/1996, 26 ultraoligotrophic to hypereutrophic ponds and lakes on Potter Peninsula (King George Island, Antarctica) were characterized on the basis of abioticExpand
