Figure F34. Plot of abundances of microbial cells and virus-like particles in Site U1366 sediment quantified by epifluorescence microscopy. Counts below the blank are shown as 102 cells/cm3 in order to present them in the graph. See “Microbiology” in the “Methods” chapter (Expedition 329 Scientists, 2011a) for a detailed description of the blank and minimum detection limit (MDL) calculation. Red line = MDL for cell counts from extracts, blue line = MDL for nonextracted samples, solid red circles = extracted cell counts above the MDL, open red circles = extracted counts below the MDL, solid black squares = VLP counts, open blue diamonds = nonextracted counts below the MDL.
