Numerical Taxonomy and Character Analysis of Saprophytic Bacteria Isolated from the Kiel Fjord and the Kiel Bight

  • M. Bölter
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 25)


Saprophytic bacteria represent only a small portion of the total number of bacteria in a body of water. This portion may be of great importance with regard to pollution, influences of land and other factors. Saprophytic bacteria may represent a major part of the active bacteria flora at least in coastal areas.
