The functional response of a seawater bacterial community transplanted into freshwater dissolved organic matter (DOM) was investigated together with the response of natural populations of bacteria to size-fractioned natural source water. Seawater bacteria were incubated over a period of 8 d in size-fractionated, freshwater DOM collected from Randers Fjord, Denmark, during spring (April) and summer (August) of 2001. Three fractions were used: 0.2 mum filtered (1 kDa (high molecular weight, HMW-DOM) and
