Protists have divergent effects on bacterial diversity along a productivity gradient.

Abstract:

Productivity and predation are thought to be crucial drivers of bacterial diversity. We tested how the productivity-diversity of a natural bacterial community is modified by the presence of protist predators with different feeding preferences. In the absence of predators, there was a unimodal relationship between bacterial diversity and productivity. We found that three protist species (Bodo, Spumella and Cyclidium) had widely divergent effects on bacterial diversity across the productivity g...
