  • Bacterial biofilms on the kelp Laminaria hyperborea 

    Bengtsson, Mia M. (The University of Bergen, 2011-03-23)
    This thesis deals with bacterial communities in biofilms on the surfaces of the kelp Laminaria hyperborea and their roles in carbon cycling. Kelp forests are characterized by high biodiversity and productivity, and cycling ...
  • Planctomycetes dominate biofilms on surfaces of the kelp Laminaria hyperborea 

    Bengtsson, Mia M.; Øvreås, Lise (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Background: Bacteria belonging to Planctomycetes display several unique morphological and genetic features and are found in a wide variety of habitats on earth. Their ecological roles in these habitats are still poorly ...
  • Seasonal dynamics of bacterial biofilms on the kelp Laminaria hyperborea 

    Bengtsson, Mia M.; Sjøtun, Kjersti; Øvreås, Lise (Inter-Research, 2010-05)
    Seasonal variations of the cell density and bacterial community composition in biofilms growing on the surface of the kelp Laminaria hyperborea from 2 sites on the southwestern coast of Norway were investigated using ...
  • Utilization of kelp-derived carbon sources by kelp surface-associated bacteria 

    Bengtsson, Mia M.; Sjøtun, Kjersti; Storesund, Julia Endresen; Øvreås, Lise (Inter-Research, 2011-01)
    The surfaces of kelp are covered with bacteria that may utilize kelp-produced carbon and thereby contribute significantly to the carbon flux in kelp forest ecosystems. There is scant knowledge about the identity of these ...
