We I4C-labeled cellulolytic bacteria and 3 species of bacterivorous nanoflagellates and fed these cultured organisms to 2 species of intertidal mussels, Geukensia demissa and Mytllus edulis. using a pulse-chase experimental design under controlled laboratory conditions. Ingestion and assimilation of C from these rmcroheterotrophs by mussels were calculated from measured rates of defecation, respiration, excretion, and tlssue incorporation. The proportion of available C ingested by G. demissa… CONTINUE READING
