Dear colleauges, if anyone out there could help, I'm interested in
getting a hold of any work that has been done dealing with the
influence of environmental fluctuation on microbial diversity.  I am
involved in estuarine research, and the sites within the estuary are
characterized by a strong gradient not only in mean concentration
(or value) of nutrients, DOM, salinity, etc... but also a strong
gradient in the diel & tidal variability (what I'm calling pulse) of
these factors.  I would be interested in ANY work that has examined
this type of environmental variability on microbial (bacterial & phyto
plankton) diversity - this could be field, lab or theoretical work. I have
searched oceanic abstracts for 1981 - present and there is very little
available there.  I appreciate any response concerning this request.
Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Sincerely,
