Two direct heterotrophic bacterioplankton counting methods, epifluorescence microscopy (EM) and flow cytometry (FCM) were compared using samples collected in two geographically different oceanic regions, the Adriatic Sea and the English Channel. A statistically significant correlation was found between results obtained by these two methods for samples collected in the Adriatic Sea (r =0.61, n =919, P <0.001) and in the English Channel (r =0.64, n =33, P <0.001). Samples from the Adriatic Sea… CONTINUE READING
