Abstract

We investigated the role of pH reduction, due to natural CO2 release, on the abundance, distribution and diversity of planktonic prokaryotes in seawater. A field experiment has been carried out during May 2008 on the seafloor east of Panarea Island in the Southern Thyrrenian Sea (Mediterranean Sea). Approaching the vent field pH values decreased from 8.1 to 6.3. Microbial assemblages are under analysis.
