Protozoan predation on bacteria and bacterioplankton secondary production were simultaneously determined in La Salvaje Beach water during 1990. Protozoan grazing on bacterioplankton was measured from fluorescently labeled bacterium uptake rates; estimates of bacterial secondary production were obtained from [H]thymidine incorporation rates. Two different conversion factors were used to transform thymidine incorporation rates into bacterial production rates; both of them were specific for La… CONTINUE READING
