Biodegradation of crude oil across a wide range of salinities by an extremely halotolerant bacterial consortium MPD‐M, immobilized onto polypropylene fibers
The bacterial consortium MPD‐M, isolated from sediment associated with Colombian mangrove roots, was effective in the treatment of hydrocarbons in water with salinities varying from 0 to 180 g L−1.Expand

Microbial antagonism: a neglected avenue of natural products research.
Competition amongst microbes for space and nutrients in the marine environment is a powerful selective force which has led to the evolution of a variety of effective strategies for colonising andExpand

The Development of a Marine Natural Product-based Antifouling Paint
Problems with tin and copper antifouling compounds have highlighted the need to develop new environmentally friendly antifouling coatings. Bacteria isolated from living surfaces in the marineExpand

Cross‐species induction and enhancement of antimicrobial activity produced by epibiotic bacteria from marine algae and invertebrates, after exposure to terrestrial bacteria
Antibiotic producing marine bacteria isolated from surfaces of the marine alga Fucus vesiculosus and the nudibranch Archidoris pseudoargus were exposed to live cells of Staphylococcus aureus,Expand

The symbiotic role of marine microbes on living surfaces
Every surface immersed in the sea rapidly becomes covered with a biofilm. On inanimate surfaces, this is often followed by colonisation by larger organisms, and general macrofouling. On the otherExpand

Antibacterial and repellent activities of marine bacteria associated with algal surfaces
Despite the ubiquity of bacteria in the marine environment little is known about the structure and function of microbial communities associated with marine ma‐croorganisms. Using a range ofExpand

Prevention of marine biofouling using natural compounds from marine organisms.
All surfaces that are submerged in the sea rapidly become covered by a biofilm. This process, called biofouling, has substantial economic consequences. Paints containing tri-butyl-tin (TBT) andExpand

Quantification of human pharmaceuticals in water samples by high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
An improved analytical method for determination of human pharmaceuticals in natural and wastewaters with ng L(-1) sensitivity is presented. The method is applicable to pharmaceuticals from a wideExpand

Biofilm-Specific Cross-Species Induction of Antimicrobial Compounds in Bacilli
ABSTRACT An air-membrane surface (AMS) bioreactor was designed to allow bacteria to grow attached to a surface as a biofilm in contact with air. When Bacillus licheniformis strain EI-34-6, isolatedExpand

Screening of Marine Bacteria for the Production of Microbial Repellents Using a Spectrophotometric Chemotaxis Assay
Abstract: A method for screening marine bacteria for the production of microbial repellents has been developed. The spectrophotometer provided quantitative information on bacterial chemotaxis inExpand
