Quantification of microbial communities in subsurface marine sediments of the Black Sea and off Namibia

Axel Schippers, Dagmar Kock, Carmen Hoeft, Gerrit Koeweker & Michael Siegert
Organic-rich subsurface marine sediments were taken by gravity coring up to a depth of 10 m below seafloor at six stations from the anoxic Black Sea and the Benguela upwelling system off Namibia during the research cruises Meteor 72-5 and 76-1, respectively. The quantitative microbial community composition at various sediment depths was analyzed using total cell counting, catalyzed reporter deposition fluorescence in situ hybridization (CARD FISH) and quantitative real-time PCR (Q-PCR). Total cell counts decreased...
