For aquatic systems, there is little data on the interactions between viruses, prokaryotes, grazers and the availability of resources. We conducted a microcosm experiment using a size fractionation approach to manipulate grazers, with a purpose to examine the effects of inorganic and organic nutrients on viral and prokaryotic standing stocks and activities, and on prokaryotic community composition as assessed by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) method. Experiments were performed during… CONTINUE READING
