Planktonic algal bloom significantly alters sediment bacterial community structure
Description: We determined the relationship of a planktonic algal bloom with spatial and temporal changes in sediment bacterial communities in a eutrophic urban river in the Taihu Basin, China. Surface sediments from different locations on the river, including with and without an algal bloom, were collected monthly for 1 year. Sediment bacterial communities were assessed by sequencing 16S rRNA gene amplicons using an Illumina MiSeq. [Source: Journal of Soils and Sediments]
