Bacterioplankton Community Composition along a Salinity Gradient of Sixteen High-Mountain Lakes Located on the Tibetan Plateau, China
TLDR
Salinity was found to be the dominating environmental factor controlling BCC in the investigated lakes, resulting in only small overlaps in the BCCs of freshwater and hypersaline lakes, and ecologically significant differences in ecophysiological adaptations among members of this narrow phylogenetic group suggested ecological significance of microdiversity.
Isolation of Novel Ultramicrobacteria Classified as Actinobacteria from Five Freshwater Habitats in Europe and Asia
TLDR
The first freshwater members of the class Actinobacteria that have been isolated from five freshwater habitats in Europe and Asia are described and it is demonstrated that at least one of the ultramicrobacteria isolated is protected against predation by the bacterivorous nanoflagellate Ochromonas sp.
Grazing of protozoa and its effect on populations of aquatic bacteria.
TLDR
The protistan grazing can result in bacterial responses at the community and the species level, and grazing-induced morphological shifts have been observed, which were directed towards either larger or smaller bacterial sizes or in both directions.

TLDR
More than 40 bacterial strains belonging to the cosmopolitan Polynucleobacter necessarius cluster (Betaproteobacteria) were isolated from a broad spectrum of freshwater habitats located in three climatic zones, showing that the previous lack of isolates cannot be explained by a lack of appropriate media.
Submersed macrophytes play a key role in structuring bacterioplankton community composition in the large, shallow, subtropical Taihu Lake, China.
TLDR
Comparative statistical analyses of BCC revealed that the dominance of submersed macrophytes was the most influential factor on BCC, responsible for a major part of the observed within-habitat heterogeneity of BCC in Taihu Lake.
Bacterial Filament Formation, a Defense Mechanism against Flagellate Grazing, Is Growth Rate Controlled in Bacteria of Different Phyla
TLDR
The finding that the grazing defense mechanism consisting of filament formation is growth rate controlled in the flectobacilli investigated and C. acidovorans PX54 may indicate that this mechanism is a phylogenetically widely distributed defense strategy against grazing.
Maximum growth rates and possible life strategies of different bacterioplankton groups in relation to phosphorus availability in a freshwater reservoir.
TLDR
Net growth rates of distinct bacterioplankton groups and heterotrophic nanoflagellate (HNF) communities in relation to phosphorus availability by analysing eight in situ manipulation experiments in the canyon-shaped Rímov reservoir are investigated.
