Biochemical Ecology of Nitrification and Denitrification
The transformations of nitrogenous compounds by soil bacteria have beenstudied for over a century. In terms of the global fluxes between aerial and terrestrial-aquatic systems, the simplifiedExpand

  • 1 May 1985
A series of N isotope tracer experiments showed that Nitrosomonas europaea produces nitrous oxide only under oxygen-limiting conditions and that the labeled N from nitrite, but not nitrate, isExpand

Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) degradation by a microbial consortium.
The widespread use of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) as a gasoline additive has resulted in a large number of cases of groundwater contamination. Bioremediation is often proposed as the mostExpand

Deterministic three-half-order kinetic model for microbial degradation of added carbon substrates in soil.
The kinetics of mineralization of carbonaceous substrates has been explained by a deterministic model which is applicable to either growth or nongrowth conditions in soil. The mixed-order nature ofExpand

Terpene-utilizing isolates and their relevance to enhanced biotransformation of polychlorinated biphenyls in soil
Orange peels, eucalyptus leaves, pine needles and ivy leaves were addedseparately to soil spiked with Aroclor 1242 (100 mgkg-1.Polychorinated biphenyls (PCBs) disappeared after six months in allExpand

Cometabolism of polychlorinated biphenyls: enhanced transformation of Aroclor 1254 by growing bacterial cells.
Acinetobacter sp. strain P6 and a soil isolate, Arthrobacter sp. strain B1B, were tested for their ability to transform Aroclor 1254 as washed resting cells and as growing cells with biphenyl as theExpand

THE EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE, pH, AND AERATION ON THE PRODUCTION OF NITROUS OXIDE AND GASEOUS NITROGEN—A ZERO‐ORDER KINETIC MODEL
A zero-order (with relation to nitrate concentration) kinetic model for denitrification is presented to illustrate the variability of nitrous oxide concentrations in the soil atmosphere. TheExpand

Degradation of polychlorinated biphenyls by two species of Achromobacter.
Two species of Achromobacter were isolated from sewage effluent using biphenyl (BP) and p-chlorobiphenyl (pCB) respectively as sole carbon sources. Achromobacter BP grown on biphenyl accumulated aExpand

Degradation of 2-hydroxybiphenyl and 2,2'-dihydroxybiphenyl by Pseudomonas sp. strain HBP1.
Pseudomonas sp. strain HBP1 was found to grow on 2-hydroxy- and 2,2'-dihydroxy-biphenyl as the sole carbon and energy sources. The first step in the degradation of these compounds was catalyzed by anExpand
