Wee-ee-eelll...more like dog-bowl trawling, in my case....that's
where I see the most green scum on the most regular basis. But
seriously now, if you want to find a whole wonderful little
ecosystem that is probably (as in the marine case) regulated by
viruses, you need look no further than your average green pond, I am
sure - lots of very interesting algae, plenty bacteria, and probably
a truck-load of uncharacterised viruses. Was going to go do that
sort of thing, when I unexpectedly got enough money to let me limp
along on geminiviruses. Now to find a geminivirus that infects pond
But sure beats looking at sheep all weekend...
