2019 TP Ecotron IdF MicrocosmesAquatic microcosms are small containers dedicated to studies of aquatic microbial ecosystems from isolated populations to communities of bacteria, microalgae and other planktonic organisms. Currently, dedicated laboratories contain 13 simple chemostats for the culture of bacteria and phytoplankton under sterile conditions and 4 double chemostats (twin system composed of two simple chemostats) dedicated to the study of interactions between phytoplankton and zooplankton.
