8 Physiological Structure and Single-cell Activity in Marine Bacterioplankton

  title={8 Physiological Structure and Single-cell Activity in Marine Bacterioplankton},
  author={Paul Del Giorgio},
Generations of microbiologists have pondered over the issue of bacterial activity and whether most bacteria in the environment are “active,” “inactive,” or “dormant” (Stevenson 1978). This is a question with clear practical implications, in terms of food, sanitary, and clinical microbiology, as well as profound ecological implications. The issue started to be debated in earnest within the aquatic microbial community roughly at the time researchers were developing new methods to estimate the… CONTINUE READING
