Antarctic ice core samples: culturable bacterial diversity.
Culturable bacterial abundance at 11 different depths of a 50.26 m ice core from the Tallaksenvarden Nunatak, Antarctica, varied from 0.02 to 5.8 × 10(3) CFU ml(-1) of the melt water. A total of 138Expand

Role of physical processes in chlorophyll distribution in the western tropical Indian Ocean
Abstract Physical control of the chlorophyll a (chl a) distribution in the western tropical Indian Ocean (WTIO, 8°N to 18°S along 65°E) was studied during the 2008 winter monsoon (WM) and the 2009Expand

Diversity of retrievable heterotrophic bacteria in Kongsfjorden, an Arctic fjord
The diversity and abundance of retrievable pelagic heterotrophic bacteria in Kongsfjorden, an Arctic fjord, was studied during the summer of 2011 (June, August, and September). Retrievable bacterialExpand

Phenotypic and molecular identification of Cellulosimicrobium cellulans isolated from Antarctic snow
We report for the first time the isolation of Cellulosimicrobium cellulans from Antarctic snow. This strain demonstrated physiological traits that were markedly different from that of the mesophilicExpand

Differences in free‐living and particle‐associated bacterial communities and their spatial variation in Kongsfjorden, Arctic
High throughput V3‐16S rRNA amplicon sequencing data was used for evaluating differences between free‐living (FL, <1.2–0.2 μm) and particle‐associated (PA, >1.2 μm) bacterial communities, and theirExpand

Response of bacterial communities from Kongsfjorden (Svalbard, Arctic Ocean) to macroalgal polysaccharide amendments.
Macroalgae are abundant in coastal Arctic habitats and contain a large amount of polysaccharides. Increased macroalgal productivity due to warmer temperatures and reduced sea-ice cover contribute aExpand

Polyphasic approach revealed complex bacterial community structure and function in deep sea sediment of ultra-slow spreading Southwest Indian Ridge
Abstract The Southwest Indian Ridge (SWIR) is one of the least explored mid-ocean ridges and contains a high frequency of hydrothermal vents. We examined the bacterial community structure andExpand
