The interaction of bactena with particulate organic matter has implications for organic matter cycling and bacterial ecology in the ocean. Until recently, the focus has been on 'classical' particles visible by unaided eye (marine snow) or light rnicroscopy. Recent discovenes of several new types of abundant particles, from sub-micrometer to sub-manne snow, are changing our ideas of the physical and chermcal nature of the particle field with which pelagic bactena interact. Previous workers have… CONTINUE READING
