Ecological and biogeochemical processesEcological and biogeochemical processes in the ocean are dependent on a diverse assemblage of microbes, including members of Bacteria (Glöckner et al, 2012). These bacterial assemblages occurs in vast numbers and represent a huge genetic diversity, fulfilling a wide of ecological roles in the marine system such as carbon geochemical cycle and energy transfer into higher trophic levels.We combined flow cytometry, CARD-FISH and 16S rRNA gene tag pyrosequencing to investigate the short-term variability of the bacterial communities in samples collected along a transect in the shelf off NW Iberian Peninsula over one week.
