Growth and grazed rates of bacterial communities in a bog as determined by the dilution method using a continuous culture system

  • Shigeaki Kojima


The population dynamics of bacterial communities in Matsumi-ike Bog located in the campus of the University of Tsukuba was studied by the dilution method with a chemostat. The apparent growth rates of bacteria (total cells, rods, cocci and commas) was linearly proportional to the dilution factor and the growth and grazed rates could be estimated. The micro-zooplankton grazing impact was 14.6% bacterial standing stock hr−1 and 19.8% bacterial production hr−1.
