Anaerobic Metabolism: Linkages to Trace Gases and Aerobic Processes
This review of anaerobic metabolism emphasizes aerobic oxidation, because the two processes cannot be separated in a complete treatment of the topic. It is process oriented and highlights theExpand

Mercury speciation and microbial transformations in mine wastes, stream sediments, and surface waters at the Almadén Mining District, Spain.
Speciation of Hg and conversion to methyl-Hg were evaluated in mine wastes, sediments, and water collected from the Almadén District, Spain, the world's largest Hg producing region. Our data forExpand

Microbial mercury transformations in marine, estuarine and freshwater sediment downstream of the Idrija Mercury Mine, Slovenia
Abstract The Idrija Mine, the second largest Hg mine in the world, ceased operation in 1995, but still delivers large quantities of Hg downstream including into the northern Adriatic Sea, 100 kmExpand

Anaerobic microbial biogeochemistry in a northern bog: Acetate as a dominant metabolic end product
[1] Field measurements and incubation techniques were used to determine the dynamics of acetate formation, iron reduction, and methanogenesis in surficial peat of an Alaskan bog. AcetateExpand

Rapid degradation of atmospheric methyl bromide in soils
METHYL bromide (CH3Br), a widely used agricultural fumigant, may be an important source of atmospheric bromine radicals, which destroy stratospheric ozone1–10. In current models of this compound'sExpand

Mercury biogeochemistry in the Idrija river, Slovenia, from above the mine into the Gulf of Trieste.
The Idrija Mine is the second largest Hg mine in the world which operated for 500 years. Mercury (Hg)-laden tailings still line the banks, and the system is a threat to the Idrija River and waterExpand

Mercury Methylation by the Methanogen Methanospirillum hungatei
ABSTRACT Methylmercury (MeHg), a neurotoxic substance that accumulates in aquatic food chains and poses a risk to human health, is synthesized by anaerobic microorganisms in the environment. To date,Expand
