The results of the Third International Workshop on the Measurement of Activity in the Carbon Cycle in Aquatic Ecosystems, held in Utrecht, The Netherlands, in August 1986, are presented in this volume. This workshop was devoted to a thorough investigation of the status of knowledge in measuring microbial activity and research strategies in aquatic microbial ecology.
