A new method based on image analysis for determining cyanobacterial biomass by CLSM in stratified benthic sediments.

Abstract

Cyanobacteria are the dominant primary producers in microbial mats, which are stratified benthic microbial ecosystems found in coastal environments. Some cyanobacteria form long filaments, which make difficult to apply classical methods to estimate their biomass because they establish strong interactions with detritic particles. In a previous study, we… (More)
