R.D. Robarts, G.M. Carr, in Encyclopedia of Inland Waters, Effect of Environmental Perturbations on Bacterioplankton. Bacterioplankton community composition, production, and abundance vary seasonally in most freshwater systems where temporal patterns have been examined, and these variations appear to track climatic variations that affect numerous biogeochemical processes.

Bacterioplankton community structure: Protists control net production and the proportion of active bacteria in a coastal marine community Paul A. de1 Giorgio Departement des sciences biologiques, Universite du Quebec a Montreal, Case Postale , Succ. Centre Ville, Montreal, Quebec H3C 3P8. Protistan size-selective grazing on aquatic bacteria has frequently been demonstrated in the laboratory, but its postulated effects on the size distribution of natural bacterioplankton communities. Bacterial community structure has been shown to be altered by bacterivory (Simek et al., ; Suzuki, ), to change during the aging of laboratory-made aggregates (Grossart and Ploug, ) and during long-term (8–10 days) incubations (Massana et al., ). Our results demonstrate that it also changes during shorter. The effect of signal compounds and of different incubation conditions on the culturability (i.e., the fraction of all cells capable of growth) of natural bacterioplankton from the eutrophic lake Zwischenahner Meer was investigated over a period of 20 months.

Bacterioplankton counting is the estimation of the abundance of bacterioplankton in a specific body of water, which is useful information to marine microbiologists. Various counting methodologies have been developed over the years to determine the number present in the water being observed. Bacterioplankton refers to the bacterial component of the plankton that drifts in the water column. The name comes from the Ancient Greek word πλανκτος (planktos), meaning "wanderer" or "drifter", and bacterium, a Latin term coined in the 19th century by Christian Gottfried are found in both seawater and freshwater.. Bacterioplankton occupy a range of ecological niches.   Peter, H., Jeppesen, E., De Meester, L. et al. Changes in bacterioplankton community structure during early lake ontogeny resulting from the retreat of the Greenland Ice Sheet.   Bacterioplankton definition is - plankton composed of bacteria.
