Abstract
    Readily identificable groups of microorganisms present on nonliving particulate organic matter (detritus) in the upper waters of Lake Tahoe are attached in specific ways and appear responsible for detrital aggregation. This microflora is associated with active hererotrophic metablism, but deeper waters possess little detrital microflora and little hererotrophic activity.
