Milestones on the path to modern in situ methods in microbial ecology
John Hobbie - Senior Scholar, Marine Biological Laboratory
Microbial ecology of water and soil has moved from cultures and observations in the 1960’s to such modern methods as fluorescent direct counts and in situ hybridization (FISH), to radio- and stable-isotopic measures of uptake kinetics, community production, and substrate respiration, and to viral dynamics. In this seminar I describe the ecology and technology behind some major developments over the past 50 years and point out current artifacts and gaps in knowledge.
