Hydrostatic pressure affects physiology and community structure of marine bacteria during settling to 4000 m : an experimental approach

  title={Hydrostatic pressure affects physiology and community structure of marine bacteria during settling to 4000 m : an experimental approach},
  author={Hans-Peter Grossart and Giselher Gust},
The response of 5 strains of shallow-water microbes to changing hydrostatic pressure was explored in a pressurized microcosm setup, simulating a sinking at 1000 m d–1 from surface waters to 4000 m depth in an isothermal ocean. Technology and methods combined a new, computercontrolled pressure laboratory with classical and new genetic tools to evaluate pressure responses of selected bacterial strains. Size, number, growth and species composition were obtained in a time series pattern under… CONTINUE READING
