Viruses have evolved different life strategies for coping with environmental challenges and this is a key explanation for their omnipresence in aquatic systems. However, factors that determine the balance between lytic versus lysogenic decision within natural virioplankton are poorly documented, primarily in freshwaters. This study was designed to investigate the experimental short-term (24 h incubation) effects of added organic and inorganic nutrients on the two viral lifestyles in nutrient… CONTINUE READING
