Microbial viruses can control host abundances via density-dependent lytic predator-prey dynamics. Less clear is how temperate viruses, which coexist and replicate with their host, influence microbial communities. Here we show that virus-like particles are relatively less abundant at high host densities. This suggests suppressed lysis where established(More)
Algae-derived dissolved organic matter has been hypothesized to induce mortality of reef building corals. One proposed killing mechanism is a zone of hypoxia created by rapidly growing microbes. To investigate this hypothesis, biological oxygen demand (BOD) optodes were used to quantify the change in oxygen concentrations of microbial communities following(More)
In this Article, the 'Predator–prey modelling' section of the Methods shows Lotka–Volterra equations. Although these equations are meant to present a basic Lotka–Volterra model, the term 'N/K' in the second equation was inadvertently introduced during proofing, which makes the equations reflect the Piggyback-the-Winner model rather than basic(More)
