Abstract:

The role of microorganisms in the maintenance of ecosystem and biosphere function indicates that bacterial biodiversity should be protected as part of an integrated management plan for the Indian River Lagoon System. Bacterial biodiversity is poorly defined for all types of habitats due to the difficulty in culturing and identifying bacteria. Molecular genetic techniques indicate that a significant number (probably the majority) of bacterial species remain unidentified. A short overview of the current status of bacterial biodiversity and its application to potential management plans for the Indian River Lagoon is presented.
