Project: Use of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) by bacteria.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-01 – 31-DEC-03
- Over a range of aquatic ecosystems of diverse trophic status we will determine the fraction of DOC that is biologically available (=labile DOC fraction). We will also determine the efficiency with which this DOC is converted to bacterial biomass (=bacterial growth efficiency). DOC will be measured using high temperature catalyc oxidation.
