Lysogenic and lytic viral production in marine microbial communities

  title={Lysogenic and lytic viral production in marine microbial communities},
  author={William H. Wilson and Nicholas Mann},
It is now well established that viruses are an abundant component of marine ecosystems and they are being increasingly recognised and accepted as important contnbutors to element cycling within the microbial loop. However, some of the key questions regarding the ecological significance of viruses in the marine environment still remain largely unanswered. Thus, particular interest is currently focused on the extent to which lytic production or lysoyeny predominates and the nature of factors in… CONTINUE READING
