Microbial release of potassium from K-bearing minerals by thermophilic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus
Abstract A strain of thermophilic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus was cultured with K-bearing minerals to determine if microbe–mineral interactions enhance the release of mineralic potassium.Expand

Carbonate biomineralization induced by soil bacterium Bacillus megaterium
Abstract Biogenic carbonates spawned from microbial activities are common occurrences in soils. Here, we investigate the carbonate biomineralization mediated by the bacterium Bacillus megaterium, aExpand

The role of fungi in biogenic weathering in boreal forest soils
In this article we discuss the possible significance of biological processes, and of fungi in particular, in weathering of minerals. We consider biological activity to be a significant driver of miExpand

Effect of microbes on karstification in karst ecosystems
The role of microbes in the karstification process was determined based on the karst dynamics, CO2 capture, and carbonate deposition. A close relationship was found among microbial activity, karstExpand

Effects of Salicylic Acid on the Development and Root Nodulation of Soybean Seedlings
Salicylic acid (SA) is recognized as an endogenous regulator of plant metabolism, mainly involved in induction of systemic acquired resistance (SAR). Exogenous SA can also induce a SAR reaction andExpand
