Supporting information text. Detailed description of experimental procedures.
Fig. S1. Experimental setup: (a) two food microcosm types, a monobacterial (left) and a combination treatment (right) [asterisk (*) indicating the 13C-labelled biofilms]; (b) microcosms consisting of two membranes covered with biofilm (not shown) placed into a Petri dish and held in place by a plastic foil and PVC ring, (c) running experiment, incubated in a climate room.
Fig. S2. UPGMA dendrogram of MALDI-TOF ribosomal protein spectra of all bacterial isolates collected from the collection Paulina salt marsh sediment. Gramella (strain S105), Jannaschia (strain 130) and Photobacterium (strain S145) isolates are indicated by a box.
Table S1. Identification of sedimentary bacteria from the Paulina salt marsh based on partial 16S rRNA gene sequences and the RDP classifier tool (with minimum confidence threshold of 80%).
Table S2. Characteristic fatty acids of the bacterial strains Gramella, Jannaschia and Photobacterium, expressed as relative abundances (%) (mean ± SD, n = 3). FA specific for one strain are highlighted in dark grey, FA in common between two strains indicated in light grey.
