Abstract
<jats:title>ABSTRACT</jats:title> <jats:p>While several studies have suggested that bacterium-phytoplankton interactions have the potential to dramatically influence harmful algal bloom dynamics, little is known about how bacteria and phytoplankton communities interact at the species composition level. The objective of the current study was to determine whether there are specific associations between diverse phytoplankton and the bacteria that co-occur with them. We determined the phylogenetic diversity of bacterial assemblages associated with 10 <jats:italic>Alexandrium</jats:italic> strains and representatives of the major taxonomic groups of phytoplankton in ...
