Table S1. Spearman Rank correlations between the relative abundance of bacterial phylogenetic groups (% of cell counts) at stationary phase in unamended seawater cultures and the environmental parameters in the inocula (shown in Table S1). Only correlations with P < 0.1 are shown. Correlations with P < 0.1, P < 0.05 and P < 0.01 are marked with *, ** and *** respectively. N varies between 9 and 10.

Table S2. Environmental parameters at the initial time of the empirical conversion factor experiments. Further details about the study site and the methods used for the measurement of the environmental variables can be found in Alonso-Sáez and colleagues (2008). nd, non determined.
