We have quantified the bacteria, heterotrophic nanoplankton (HNAN), and other microorganisms in 108 lakes, ponds, rivers, and bogs worldwide. These water bodies span the range of biological productivities in freshwater. Numbers of HNAN and bacteria are correlated over four orders of magnitude in each (3 x 10(2) to 4 x 10(6) ml-1 and 3 x 10(5) to 1 x 10(9) ml-1, respectively) and both increase with the productivity of the water body. Most HNAN are small (2-5-mu-m), colorless, flagellated… CONTINUE READING
