Comments P.3682 left column 2nd paragraph: "Statistical analysis and back-calculations in natural marine environments predicted 10^5 cells/ml as minimal bacterioplankton concentrations for successful virus production. However, some marine viruses replicated efficiently down to 10^3 specific host cells/ml (primary source)."
