Effect of silicate grain shape, structure, and location on the biomass and community structure of colonizing marine microbiota.

Abstract

Microbiota colonizing silica grains of the same size and water pore space, but with a different microtopography, showed differences in biomass and community structure after 8 weeks of exposure to running seawater. The absence of surface cracks and crevices resulted in a marked diminution of the total microbial biomass measured as lipid phosphate and total… (More)
