Virio- and bacterioplankton of a small river: Influence that viruses have on the mortality of heterotrophic bacteria

Abstract

The spatial distribution of virio- and bacterioplankton and the role that viruses play in heterotrophic bacteria elimination was studied in the small Il’d’ River (Rybinskoe Reservoir tributary, Upper Volga). The bacterioplankton abundance and biomass constituted 3.3–19.6 (8.5 on average) million cells/ml and 501–2353 mg/m3 (1054 mg/m3 on average… (More)
