Covers Bacteria, microalgae, protozoa, and microzooplankton, such as
larvaceans and rotifers. The main tasks of this book are: to develop a
methodology for adequate quantification and taxonomic identification of the
main groups of micro-organisms; to estimate their community structure,
density, and distribution; the evaluate their functional activity in the
production and decomposition of organic matter, in the turnover and dynamic
of nutrients and other biologically important elements; and to establish
their roles in the trophodynamics, and more specifically in their
productivity and energy balance. Chapters: Aquatic microbial communities:
phytoplankton; Bacterioplankton; Microzooplankton; Benthic microbial
communities; Trophic importance of microbial production in aquatic food
webs; Physiological groups of aquatic batceria and their biogeochemical
activity; Regional microbial ecology of pristine and anthropogenically
stressed waters; and Practical application of selected methods.
