We compared the abilities of Biolog's GN and ECO plates to distinguish among aerobic and heterotrophic bacterial communities in samples from six aquatic environments. The Biolog system is based on interpreting patterns of sole-carbon substrate utilization indicated by color development in a 96-well microtiter plate. Whether of fresh or saltwater origin, bacterial communities utilized > 95% of substrates in both types of plates. Samples from any one environment exhibited similar time courses of… CONTINUE READING
