This was not surprising as it had been assumed for some time that phytoplankton would be a major provider of substrates for bacterial production and growth, either at the time of their senescence and death or by the extracellular release of dissolved organic compounds during photosynthesis.

These studies also led to the discovery of novel uncultivated prokaryotes. More recently, more and more studies have focused on the differences between attached and free-living bacteria and on the community structure of biofilmassociated bacteria in aquatic environments. Specific probes have been applied to the study of the microbial colonization of biofilms and micro- and macroaggregates in both marine and freshwater ecosystems. These studies are few in number, but have provided important information on the diversity and community structure of bacteria attached to surfaces.

At this point, the attachment becomes irreversible. Genetic studies of the adhesion of Pseudomonas aeruginosa have revealed that cells change phenotype when they become sessile and that this change is achieved through gene expression. The development of the biofilm involves the growth and multiplication of attached cells within bacterial colonies and also the colonization of new bacterial species. Structural features on the cell surface (fimbriae, flagella) are involved in the firm attachment of bacteria, while EPSs, which consist of polysaccharides, extracellular DNA, and proteins, play an important role in the coaggregation of cells.
