Heterotrophic bacterioplankton play a key role in the transfer of organic carbon from the dissolved pool into planktonic trophic webs. The accurate measurement of bacterial biomass production (BBP) is crucial for the establishment of carbon budgets in aquatic systems. Estimation of BBP from the incorporation of radiolabelled leucine into bacterial proteins requires the use of empirical, semitheoretical or theoretical conversion factors (CFs). In this study, our estimate of the BBP for the… CONTINUE READING
