Seasonal and spatial distribution of bacterial production and biomass along a salinity gradient (Northern Adriatic Sea)

Abstract

The Adriatic Sea is a semi-enclosed ecosystem that receives in itsshallow part, the northern basin, significant freshwater inputs whichmarkedly increase its productivity with respect to the oligotrophic featuresof the Mediterranean sea. In this area, especially on the western coastwhere river plumes diffuse, high physical (density) and chemical (nutrients… (More)
