Abstract

Dynamics of autotrophic and heterotrophic prokaryotes and their consumption by nanoflagellates were studied in the euphotic zone at nine stations located from the Levantine Basin (34 E) to the Balearic sea (5 E) in June 1999. Bacterial biomass constituted the largest proportion of living biomass at all stations. Integrated bacterial production at the furthest east station, was sixfold lower than integrated bacterial production at the furthest west (13 and 75 mg C m− 2 d− 1 respectively). Estimated heterotrophic nanoflagellate ...
