Influence of diatom exopolymers and biofilms on metamorphosis in the barnacle Balanus amphitrite
(Inter Research, 2005)
Natural biofilms constitute a complex network of microorganisms (bacteria, diatoms, protozoa, fungi) and their extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), which influence settlement inbenthic invertebrates. The influence of ...
Antibacterial activity of the sponge Ircinia ramosa: Importance of its surface-associated bacteria
Variations in the antibacterial activity of the sponge Ircinia ramosa were evaluated during two collection periods (January and May) against vicinity fouling bacteria (VFB) and sponge surface-associated bacteria (SAB). The ...
Factors regulating the production of different inducers in Pseudomonas aeruginosa with reference to larval metamorphosis in Balanus amphitrite
Gregarious settlement in barnacles has been related to the settlement-inducing compounds from adult conspecifics, bacteria in the biofilms, and their interaction. Elucidation of larval settlement cues from these sources ...
