Study Detail

TitleEnrichment of bacteria potentially involved in a brown alga degradation in the guts of marine gastropods
Study TypeOther
Abstract A part of gut bacteria of herbivorous marine invertebrates may utilize macroalgae components as carbon source. We hypothesized that exclusive feeding of a target alga to marine invertebrates may enrich gut bacteria involved in the degradation of the algal components. To test the hypothesis, we reare .. [more]
