16S rDNA Pyrosequencing Analysis of Bacterial Community in Heavy Metals Polluted Soils
TLDR
It was found that the samples differed significantly and Zn decreased both diversity and species richness at species and family levels, while plant species richness did not correlate with bacterial diversity. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Miltogramminae (Diptera: Sarcophagidae): Implications for classification, systematics and evolution of larval feeding strategies.
TLDR
Ancestral state reconstruction of larval feeding strategy and five larval characters reveals that the ancestor of Miltogramminae was likely a saprophage retaining plesiomorphic oral ridges and a cephaloskeleton with sclerotized dorsal bridge, suggesting that the ancestral first instar larva actively searched for a buried food supply. Expand
Comamonadaceae OTU as a Remnant of an Ancient Microbial Community in Sulfidic Waters
TLDR
An investigation on the microbiomes of unique, subsurface sulfidic waters associated with Upper Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Miocene sediments reveals the structure of bacterial and archaeal communities in water samples differing in sulfide content, salinity, and depth of extraction. Expand
Biofilm formation on the surface of polylactide during its biodegradation in different environments.
TLDR
The results indicate that PLA is sensitive to biodegradation in any environment, particularly in compost, and different bacterial species formed biofilm of different abundance and hydrolytic activitiy levels. Expand
Microbial communities associated with the anthropogenic, highly alkaline environment of a saline soda lime, Poland
TLDR
A surprisingly diverse bacterial community was discovered in this highly saline, alkaline and nutrient-poor environment, with the bacterial phyla Proteobacteria (representing 52.8% of the total bacterial community) and Firmicutes showing dominance. Expand
Biofilm formation during biodegradation of polylactide, poly (3,4 hydroxybutyrate) and poly(ε-caprolactone) in activated sludge.
TLDR
The introduction of PHMG derivatives into PLA, PCL, and PHB films did not affect biofilm formation and hydrolase activity for most of the isolates, and biological oxygen demand and physical properties of materials indicated that PCL was the best biodegradable film. Expand
Changes in bacterial and archaeal communities during the concentration of brine at the graduation towers in Ciechocinek spa (Poland)
TLDR
It was found that increasing salt concentration was positively correlated with both the cell counts, and species-level diversity of bacterial and archaeal communities, and indicated that potentially new bacterial taxa inhabit this unique environment. Expand
Rapid Microbial Community Changes During Initial Stages of Pine Litter Decomposition
TLDR
It is suggested that bacterial and eukaryotic decomposer communities change at different stages of pine litter decomposition in a way similar to that in broadleaf litter. Expand
The Contribution of Endomycorrhiza to the Performance of Potato Virus Y-Infected Solanaceous Plants: Disease Alleviation or Exacerbation?
TLDR
The significance of AM colonization for the course of disease, the potential of AMF networks to act as vectors for PVY, and the consequences for crop breeding and production of AM biofertilizers are reviewed. Expand
Microbial Communities of Low Temperature, Saline Groundwater Used for Therapeutical Purposes in North Poland
Abstract Knowledge on microbial community composition and ecology in highly mineralized (TDS up to 71 g l−1), cold waters (T < 12 °C) from the zones of restricted water exchange is scarce. Therefore,Expand
