- Impact of virioplankton on archaeal and bacterial community richness as assessed in seawater batch culturesChristian Winter
Department of Biological Oceanography, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, Texel, The Netherlands
Appl Environ Microbiol 70:804-13. 2004..Therefore, we conclude that individual members of pelagic archaeal and bacterial communities can be differently affected by the presence of virioplankton...
- Modelling viral impact on bacterioplankton in the North Sea using artificial neural networksChristian Winter
Department Biological Oceanography, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, PO Box 59, 1790 AB Den Burg, Texel, The Netherlands
Environ Microbiol 7:881-93. 2005..The models can be used to simulate viral production and FIC based on regularly recorded and easily obtainable parameters such as bacterial production, bacterial and viral abundance...
- Links between viral and prokaryotic communities throughout the water column in the (sub)tropical Atlantic OceanDaniele De Corte
Department of Biological Oceanography, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research NIOZ, Den Burg, The Netherlands
ISME J 4:1431-42. 2010..The more than twofold increase in bacterial OTUs from 2750 m depth to >5000 m depth and the concurrent decrease in viral OTUs, however, suggests that viruses might exhibit a wider host range in deep waters than in surface waters...
- Relationship between bacterioplankton richness, respiration, and production in the Southern North SeaThomas Reinthaler
Department of Biological Oceanography, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research NIOZ, P O Box 59, 1790 AB Den Burg, Texel, The Netherlands
Appl Environ Microbiol 71:2260-6. 2005..Our results indicate that despite the observed shifts in the community composition, the main function of the bacterioplankton, the remineralization of dissolved organic carbon to CO(2), is rather stable...
- Longitudinal changes in the bacterial community composition of the Danube River: a whole-river approachChristian Winter
Institute of Chemical Engineering, Department for Applied Biochemistry and Gene Technology, Vienna University of Technology, Getreidemarkt 166 169, 1060 Vienna, Austria
Appl Environ Microbiol 73:421-31. 2007..Large impoundments did not have a discernible effect on the bacterial community of the water column. In conclusion, the riverine bacterial community was largely influenced by intrinsic factors...
- Relationship of geographic distance, depth, temperature, and viruses with prokaryotic communities in the eastern tropical Atlantic OceanChristian Winter
University of British Columbia, EOS Oceanography, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z4, Canada
Microb Ecol 56:383-9. 2008..The results indicate that planktonic archaeal virus host systems are a dynamic component of marine ecosystems under natural conditions...
