Table 1 Log10 reduction values for somatic coliphage, F+ coliphage and adenovirus. Treatments: A (exposure to sunlight and indigenous microbiota including protozoa), B (exposure to only indigenous microbiota including protozoa), C (exposure to sunlight only), D (exposure to neither)

From: Decay of infectious adenovirus and coliphages in freshwater habitats is differentially affected by ambient sunlight and the presence of indigenous protozoa communities
