Bacterioplankton community structure and enzymatic activity in Barkley Sound, Canada, and its response to a simulated diatom bloom
MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the bacterioplankton community dynamics in Barkley Sound, located on Vancouver Island Canada, and the extent to which the community structure would change with the occurrence of a simulated diatom bloom. Bottle incubations were conducted using a diatom lysate to replicate bloom conditions. Bacterial relative abundance was monitored along with enzymatic activity. The community structure was also examined to show the community dynamics.
