Hi !
I´m looking for literature on DOC and/or nutrient (P and N) limitations 
for biofilms (in stream ecosystems). Could anyone give me references ? I 
know there should be lots of experimental work done in labs - probably 
also in the field ? 
I am a zoologist and my main interest is, how interstitial water 
enriched with DOC (glucose or maybe an AA ?) and nutrients influence 
biofilms and going up a step in the food web - the indirect influence on 
the invertebrate community. I am happy with any hint or discussion. 
Thanks in advance for any help
