National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, University of Southampton, Southampton, UK
FEMS Microbiol Lett 306:82-9. 2010..Thus, dust dissolution in situ appears to be more deleterious to Prochlorococcus than SAR11-dominated LNA bacterioplankton and hence could initiate a compositional shift in the indigenous bacterioplankton...

National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, Hampshire SO14 3ZH, UK
Nature 455:224-6. 2008..This has important implications for how we perceive nutrient acquisition and limitation of carbon-fixing protists as well as control of bacterioplankton in the ocean...
