A set of keys for biochemical identification of environmental Vibrio species.
A set of biochemical keys which provide fast and presumptive identification for Vibrio spp. is presented. They have been specially designed for environmental isolates, and can be used for strains…
Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in different environments (humans, food, animal farms and sewage).
This widespread occurrence of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae suggests that the community could act as a reservoir and that food could contribute to the spread of these strains.

ABSTRACT Several microbes and chemicals have been considered as potential tracers to identify fecal sources in the environment. However, to date, no one approach has been shown to accurately identify…
Multiplex PCR with 16S rRNA Gene-Targeted Primers of Bifidobacterium spp. To Identify Sources of Fecal Pollution
A multiplex PCR approach with strain-specific primers was developed and showed a sensitivity threshold of 10 cells/ml and could provide useful information for the characterization of fecal pollution sources.
Identification of Enterococcus spp. with a Biochemical Key
A six-step biochemical key for the identification of all recognized Enterococcus spp.
Identification of Vibrio spp. with a set of dichotomous keys
Aims: To define a binary biochemical key for the identification of all recognized Vibrio spp.
Comparison of enterococcal populations in animals, humans, and the environment--a European study.

Inducible stx(2) phages are common among STEC of animal origin and that they may enhance the spread of stx (2) and are shown to have diverse morphology and a wide variability in their genome.
Comparison of enterococcal populations related to urban and hospital wastewater in various climatic and geographic European regions
The species distribution of enterococci and the presence of resistant strains to vancomycin and erythromycin were analysed in more than 400 raw and treated urban wastewaters, surface waters receiving these treated wastewwaters and hospital wastewater from three European countries.
Method for Isolation of Bacteroides Bacteriophage Host Strains Suitable for Tracking Sources of Fecal Pollution in Water
A feasible method for isolating Bacteroides host strains for phages present in human fecal material is described and useful strains were identified for application in Spain and the United Kingdom.
