Determination of viral production in aquatic sediments using the dilution-based approach

Viruses are the most abundant and dynamic biological entities in the world's ecosystems. Marine sediments, the largest biome in the world, have the potential to represent an optimal environment for viral development. To assess the viral effect on their hosts, and to understand the ecological role of the viruses in the benthic food webs and biogeochemical… CONTINUE READING
