The final category, the picoplankton or ultraplankton, was defined when the use of fluorescence or stains revealed the smallest organisms, such as heterotrophic bacteria, cyanobacteria, and other autotrophic
If most autotrophic
organisms in the system have turnover times longer than a day, then this oscillation describes an approximately static biotic composition responding to the on-off light switch.
This assertion may be supported by the predominance of heterotrophic and autotrophic
bacteria in relation to Vibrio in all treatments, which certainly used their antagonisms to control the abundance of Vibrio in culture tanks.
Tortoso AC, Hutchinson GL (1990) Contributions of autotrophic
and heterotrophic nitrifiers to soil NO and [N.
Every sample of seawater contains all four types of lipids, coming from a mix of autotrophic
and heterotrophic microbes.
The selection of a proper substrate with low septicity, high aeration, permeability and a correct acidity grade is a requisite to guarantee conditions of initiation and autotrophic
Since the cultures of autotrophic
cyanobacteria used in the foregoing experiments were not axenic, the contribution of heterotrophic bacteria in the mineralization of DON substances is not known.
In the world of biofuels, 2010 is officially the year of the autotrophic
organism as dozens of companies and academic laboratories race to transform algae into a source of viable green energy, according to "Algae Biofuels Production Technologies Worldwide" by leading industrial market research firm SBI Energy.
Inubushi K, Naganuma H, Kitahara S (1996) Contribution of denitrification and autotrophic
and heterotrophic nitrification to nitrous oxide production in Andosols.
Such conditions are required for the growth of sulfide-oxidizing microorganisms and are considered necessary to sustain mainly autotrophic
carbon fixation for invertebrate communities, both, in free-living forms or in symbiotic relationships with host animals.
Nitrification of organic nitrogen and ammonia to nitrate requires an autotrophic
population and aerobic conditions.
embryos were more lignified and appeared to be autotrophic
