Abstract The natural community of epiphytic bacteria and diatoms on the submerged macrophyte Ranunculus trichophyllus Chaix was examined using scanning electron microscopy. To evaluate the effects of organic pollution on planktonic and epiphytic microflora, different sites were selected along a chalk stream (Erms) with increasing organic pollution. Planktonic bacteria, measured both by viable and direct counts, increased with enhanced water pollution. Microscopic examinations showed an… Expand
