It has been postulated that a variety of physically undefended marine invertebrates have evolved strategies to control microbial epibiosis chemically. Ecologically meaningful experiments that demonstrate chemically mediated antibacterial effects are difficult due to the small number of cultivable bacteria. Based on the example of three sponges, this study introduces a culture-independent methodology to investigate chemically mediated control of bacterial epibiosis by analyzing the natural… CONTINUE READING
