Yury I Sorokin
The radiocarbon method was used to determine relative activity of heterotrophic microflora in deep-sea bottom sediments of the Central Indian Ocean. It was demonstrated that viable microflora of sediments at depths >4000 m inhabits only the upper layer 2-10 cm thick. In specimens taken from the sedimentary layer 10-15 mm from the bottom surface there was no noticeable assimilation of tagged organic matter. Obtained data confirm the point of view that there is no functional...
