A combination of analyses were used to characterize the changes that occur in a bacterial community present in the phyllosphere of the epiphytic resurrection fern, Polypodium polypodioides, as the fern rehydrates from a desiccation-resistant, physiologically inactive state. Enrichment assays showed an increase in the viable count of bacteria using labile(More)
Inorganic arsenic primarily exists as oxidized arsenate or reduced arsenite. A number of microorganisms have been identified that show arsenic redox activity and are capable of transforming arsenic between these two states. Dissimilatory arsenate reducers use arsenate as the terminal electron acceptor in anaerobic respiration, while chemoautotrophic(More)
