The effect of crop rotation and monocropping on the occurrence of bacteria with antagonistic activity toward Pythium debaryanum and Fusarium oxysporum was shown. Arthrobacter spp., fluorescent Pseudomonas spp. and actinomycetes were isolated from winter rape, sugar beet and winter barley rhizosphere and bulk soil from the plots of a long-term crop rotation(More)
The dynamics of mesophilic and thermophilic bacterial population was studied in the bulk soil and rhizosphere of the grass Aristida adscensionis L. in a caatinga of the semi-arid Brazilian Northeast. Mesophilic heterotrophic bacteria, spore–forming bacteria and actinomycetes were significantly more abundant than thermophiles, and their counts were 10 10 CFU(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential of nisin and high pH to inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella sp. in broth culture and when inoculated into meat of land crab. In pure cultures, the growth of S. aureus was strongly inhibited by nisin and the growth of Salmonella sp. was inhibited by nisin– EDTA (20 mM). The inhibition(More)
The relative abundance of the genus Siderastrea and its relationship with temperature and irradiance was assessed around Sal Island (Cape Verde). In some of the surveyed sites, these corals accounted for 80–90 % of the living cover, making it a biotope-dominant organism. Unlike Siderastrea corals from West Atlantic and Caribbean locations, genetic analyses(More)
Study on mangrove water and sediment of Paraiba do Norte river (Northeastern Brazil) and crabmeat of Ucides cordatus was carried to investigate the relation between the abundance of bacteria in the mangrove habitat and in the crabmeat. Simultaneous collection of samples of water, sediment and crabs (U. cordatus) was done during the rainy and dry seasons at(More)
Biosurfactants are microbial secondary metabolites. The most studied are rhamnolipids, which decrease the surface tension and have emulsifying capacity. In this study, the production of biosurfactants, with emphasis on rhamnolipids, and diesel oil degradation by 18 strains of bacteria isolated from waste landfill soil contaminated by petroleum was analyzed.(More)
