Comments p.237 right column top paragraph:"In marine microbial communities from southeastern US coastal waters and the Amazon River plume, [investigators] estimated ~200 mRNAs per cell (Table 1), a value less than for laboratory-grown cells (Table 1) but consistent with expectations for lower macromolecule inventories in environmental cells (Lee and Fuhrman, 1987 Simon and Azam, 1989 Schut et al., 1993)."
