Culturable Bacteria in Subglacial Sediments and Ice from Two Southern Hemisphere Glaciers
Viable prokaryotes have been detected in basal sediments beneath the few Northern Hemisphere glaciers that have been sampled for microbial communities. However, parallel studies have not previouslyExpand

Hydrocarbon contamination changes the bacterial diversity of soil from around Scott Base, Antarctica.
A combination of culture-independent and culturing methods was used to determine the impacts of hydrocarbon contamination on the diversity of bacterial communities in coastal soil from Ross Island,Expand

Bioremediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated polar soils
Bioremediation is increasingly viewed as an appropriate remediation technology for hydrocarbon-contaminated polar soils. As for all soils, the successful application of bioremediation depends onExpand

Hydrocarbon spills on Antarctic soils: effects and management.
Antarctic exploration and research have led to some significant although localized impacts on the environment. Human impacts occur around current or past scientific research stations, typicallyExpand

Relation between soil classification and bacterial diversity in soils of the Ross Sea region, Antarctica
Abstract Soils of the Ross Sea region of Antarctica are among the least diverse ecosystems on earth. Few plants and animals have colonised these soils, but bacteria are distributed throughout. WeExpand

Microbial degradation of DDT and its residues—A review
Abstract Microbial degradation of DDT residues is one mechanism for loss of DDT from soil. In this review pathways for biodegradation of DDT, DDD, and DDE by bacteria and fungi are described.Expand

Bioremediation of DDT-Contaminated Soils: A Review
The insecticide 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis-(4-chlorophenyl)ethane (DDT) has been used extensively since the 1940s for control of agricultural pests, and is still used in many tropical countries forExpand

Bacterial diversity associated with ornithogenic soil of the Ross Sea region, Antarctica.
In the Ross Sea region of Antarctica, ornithogenic soils form on land under Adélie Penguin rookeries. Compared with mineral soils of the Ross Sea region, ornithogenic soils are generally high inExpand

Co-variation in soil biodiversity and biogeochemistry in northern and southern Victoria Land, Antarctica
Data from six sites in Victoria Land (72-77oS) investigating co-variation in soil communities (microbial and invertebrate) with biogeochemical properties showthe influence of soil properties onExpand

Cold-tolerant alkane-degrading Rhodococcus species from Antarctica
Abstract Bioremediation is a possible mechanism for clean-up of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils in the Antarctic. Microbes indigenous to the Antarctic are required that degrade the hydrocarbonExpand
