The review focuses on some physiological and molecular processes of the bacterial downshift from growth to nongrowth induced by substrate limitations, with emphasis on the marine ecosystem. An understanding of the pathway of downshift and starvation survival, including the efficient substrate-scavenging capacity of nongrowing bacterial cells, is of fundamental importance not only in the area of microbial ecology but also in the area of public health related to survival of pathogens.
