Nutrient limitation of bacterioplankton growth was studied in the western Mediterranean Sea to determine its spatial and temporal variations. Shipboard microcosm experiments were performed in June 1995, June 1996 and September 1996. Seawater was amended with carbon (C, as glucose), nitrate (N) and phosphate (P), individually or in combination. The limiting nutrient was inferred from the combination that stimulated the highest bacterial production and generated the highest bacterial biomass in… CONTINUE READING
