Figure F61. Plot of abundances of microbial cells and virus-like particles (VLPs) in Site U1365 sediment quantified by epifluorescence microscopy. Direct counts below the mean blank were set to 102 cells/cm3 in order to present them in the graph. See “Microbiology” in the “Methods” chapter (Expedition 329 Scientists, 2011) for a detailed description of the calculation of the blank and the MDL. Red line = minimum detection limit (MDL) for counts on cell extracts, blue line = MDL for nonextracted samples, solid red circles = extracted microbial cell counts above the extracted-count MDL, open red circles = extracted counts below the MDL, open blue diamonds = nonextracted counts below the nonextracted MDL, solid black squares = VLP counts.
