Niche Differentiation of Pelagic Microbes in Artificially Warmed Lakes



To obtain more insight into microbiomes in aquatic food webs and possible influencing factors, we used high-throughput 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing to assess diversity and composition of microbiomes associated to copepods, cladocerans, phytoplankton, as well as free-living bacterioplankton and how these are affected by warming and other environmental parameters. We investigated this by comparing the zooplankton and phytoplankton associated microbiomes as well as the free-living bacteria in the water column of five artificially warmed-lakes.
