Bacterioplanktonic biomass and production in the river Meuse (Belgium)

  title={Bacterioplanktonic biomass and production in the river Meuse (Belgium)},
  author={Pierre Servais},
This paper presents results of bacterial biomass determination by epifluorescence microscopy after acridine orange staining and 3H-thymidine incorporation measurements in the river Meuse. Bacterial production is calculated from thymidine incorporation using an experimental conversion factor (0.5 1018 bacterial cells produced per mole of thymidine incorporated into macromolecules). Seasonal variations of bacterial biomass and production at two stations are presented. Biomass ranges between 0.05… CONTINUE READING
