Data from: Importance of mixotrophic bacterivory can be predicted by light and loss rates

Robert Fischer, Helge-Ansgar Giebel, Helmut Hillebrand & Robert Ptacnik
Recent observational studies form oligotrophic waters provide ample evidence that mixotrophic flagellates often account for the bulk of bacterivory. However, we lack a general framework that allows a mechanistic understanding of success of mixotrophs in the competition with heterotrophic bacterivores. This is especially needed for integrating mixotrophy in models of the microbial loop. Based on general tradeoffs linked to the combined resource use in mixotrophs (generalist versus specialist), we propose a concept where mixotrophs are...
