Food Web Structure in the Recently Flooded Sep Reservoir as Inferred From Phytoplankton Population Dynamics and Living Microbial Biomass


Phytoplankton dynamics, bacterial standing stocks and living microbial biomass (derived from ATP measurements, 0.7-200 mm size class) were examined in 1996 in the newly flooded (1995) Sep Reservoir ('Massif Central,' France), for evidence of the importance of the microbial food web relative to the traditional food chain. Phosphate concentrations were low, N… (More)
