The importance of protists as bacterivores in a coastal community and an offshore community of Lake Erie was compared during the summer of 1994. Bacterial density, cell size, and empirical conversion factors for bacterial productivity were highly variable at both sites and greater at the coastal site (P < 0.01). Bacterial productivity at the coastal site was 25-50 times higher than at the offshore site. Bacterivory was estimated in situ by fluorescently labeled native bacteria. Per-cell grazing… CONTINUE READING
