The mixotroph Poterioochromonas malhamensis was grown in batch and semicontinuous cultures in order to examine the dependence of phagotrophy versus phototrophy at bacterial densities similar to those found in oligoand mesotrophic lakes in combination with differing light regimes. In addition, the growth rates and biomass accumulation of the mixotroph were compared to those of the heterotroph Spumella elongata grown under similar conditions. In P. malhamensis, primary production rates and cell… CONTINUE READING
