Short summary
Under UVR and stratification,the commensalistic algae-bacteria interaction was strengthened in the high-UVR lake, where excretion of organic carbon rates exceeded the bacterial carbon demand,but did not occur in the low-UVR lake.The greater UVR damage to algae and bacteria and the weakening of their commensalistic interaction found in the low-UVR lake indicates these lakes would be especially vulnerable to UVR. These results have implications for the C cycle in lakes of the Mediterranean region.
