In dark conditions diatom densities were low during most of the experiment, despite reinoculation efforts (Fig.
This effect was detected despite the fact that food supply was generally lower in the dark treatment even after periodic reinoculation effort (Fig.
Three different treatments of the soils were performed: (1) steam sterilisation in autoclave (120[degrees]C for 1 h), in order to eliminate the native microflora; (2) reinoculation of autoclaved samples by adding 1 g of non-treated soil; (3) carbon supply--a mixture of cellulose (0.
Although some organic oils and other natural products have antimicrobial activity, their biocidal capabilities are limited and they usually cannot withstand the continuous reinoculation that most personal care products must endure.
The consumption of diatoms corresponds to the plate rotation rather than to reinoculation.
jeffreyi did not correspond with the reinoculation but rather the plate rotation 180[degrees] about the horizontal.
For some strains, reinoculation procedure was also performed onto 5x [10.
After 16 days (when postlarvae were 18-days old), reinoculation densities were increased to 500, 1,000, 2,000, 4,000, 8,000, and 10,000 cells/[mm.
Seawater was changed daily and reinoculations of diatoms at the experimental densities were performed every 4 days.
