Method P.6751 caption to table 1: "Average cell volume was calculated according to the electronic microscopic measurements done in the current study."
Comments P.6750 right column bottom paragraph: "In comparison, bacterial species with smaller biovolumes, i.e., S. alaskensis (0.07 μm^3) and B. diminuta (0.08 μm^3), showed a higher filterability through 0.45 μm pore-size filters, but there was no significant difference between all species (except for H. gracilis) in the passage percentage through 0.22 μm pore-size filters."
