Języki publikacji
The paper presents the results of the study of abundance, biomass, mean cell volume and secondary production of bacteria inhabiting a marine-bay sandy beach, at southern Baltic Sea coast (Sopot) in summer season. The differences of bacteriological parameters among sites across beach horizontal profile were determined. Maximal value of the total bacteria numbers (8.59 [plus or minus] 0.73 x 10[^7]cells g[^-1] dw), biomass (15.2 [plus or minus] 4.4 [my]g C g[^-1] dw) and cell volume of bacterium (0.056 [plus or minus] 0.011 [my]m3) was noted at the waterline and bacterial secondary production was highest in the dune (172.3 [plus or minus] 86.6 [my]g C g[^-1] dw d[^-1]) and at the waterline (119.9 [plus or minus] 40.5 [my]g C g[^-1] dw d[^-1]). Marked differences in the level of bacteriological parameters between surface and subsurface sand layers were estimated. In the sea, at the waterline and in the middle of the beach higher numbers of bacteria, their biomass and secondary production were found in the surface (0.1 cm) than in the subsurface (5.10 cm) sand layers. A reverse situation was observed in the dune.
