Viral lysis of Phaeocystis pouchetii and bacterial secondary production

  title={Viral lysis of Phaeocystis pouchetii and bacterial secondary production},
  author={Anita Jacobsen and Mikal Heldall},
In this experimental study we investigated the effect of viral infection on primary production and carbon flow in a phytoplankton-DOC-bacteria food chain during viral lysis of the phytoplankton population. The phytoplankter host-virus system used was Phaeocystis pouchetii (Pryrnnesiophyceae) and the virus PpVO1. Viral infection allowed primary production in the cells to continue throughout most of the lytic cycle. In non-infected algal cultures, net production of DOC and bacterial biomass was… CONTINUE READING
