Contrasting bacterial strategies to coexist with a flagellate predator in an experimental microbial assemblage.

Abstract

We studied predator-induced changes within a slowly growing mixed microbial assemblage that was sustained by algal exudates in a continuous cultivation system. In situ hybridization with fluorescent monolabeled oligonucleotide probes was used for a tentative community analysis. This method also allowed us to quantify the proportions of predators with… (More)
