Zooplankton provide microhabitats for bacteria, but factors which influence zooplankton-associated bacterial abundance are not well known. Through a year-long field study, we measured the concentration of free-living bacteria and bacteria associated with the dominant mesozooplankters Acartia tonsa and Balanus sp. Free-living bacteria peaked in the summer, while zooplankton-associated bacteria peaked in summer and winter. No relationships were found between bacterial abundance per individual and… CONTINUE READING
