Genesis of Acetate and Methane by Gut Bacteria of Nutritionally Diverse Termites
Findings should help refine global estimates of carbon dioxide reduction in anoxic habitats and the contribution of termite emissions to atmospheric methane concentrations. Expand
Aminomonas paucivorans gen. nov., sp. nov., a mesophilic, anaerobic, amino-acid-utilizing bacterium.
A novel, asaccharolytic, amino-acid-degrading bacterium, isolated from an anaerobic lagoon of a dairy wastewater treatment plant, is proposed that it should be designated a new species of a new genus Aminomonas paucivorans gen. nov. Expand
Aminobacterium colombiensegen. nov. sp. nov., an amino acid-degrading anaerobe isolated from anaerobic sludge.
A new gram-negative, non-sporulating, mesophilic, amino acid fermenting bacterium was isolated from an anaerobic lagoon of a dairy wastewater treatment plant and phylogenetic results concur with the phenotypic and genomic data which reveal that it is a novel strain. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of three amino-acid-utilizing anaerobes, Selenomonas acidaminovorans, 'Selenomonas acidaminophila' and Eubacterium acidaminophilum, as inferred from partial 16S rDNA
Based on the phylogenetic data presented in this report and the phenotypic descriptions of these bacteria published previously, it is recommended that S. acidaminovorans be transferred to a new genus, Thermanaerovibrio gen. nov. and 'Selenomonas acidaminophila' be transfer to anew genus, Anaeromusa gen.nov.

Stenotrophomonas acidaminiphila sp. nov., a strictly aerobic bacterium isolated from an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor.
Two of several strictly aerobic, mesophilic bacteria isolated from a lab-scale upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor treating a petrochemical wastewater, strains AMX 17 and AMX 19T, were subjected to detailed taxonomic study and proposed as a novel species of the genus Stenotrophomonas. Expand
Pseudoxanthomonas mexicana sp. nov. and Pseudoxanthomonas japonensis sp. nov., isolated from diverse environments, and emended descriptions of the genus Pseudoxanthomonas Finkmann et al. 2000 and of
Three mesophilic bacteria isolated from an anaerobic digester, human urine and urban riverside soil were characterized and showed that strain 12-3(T) was genomically and phenotypically distinct from the other two isolates and two novel species of the genus Pseudoxanthomonas are proposed. Expand
Simultaneous hydrocarbon biodegradation and biosurfactant production by oilfield‐selected bacteria
Aims:  To study the bacterial diversity associated with hydrocarbon biodegradation potentiality and biosurfactant production of Tunisian oilfields bacteria.
Methane emission from flooded forest in central Africa
In this report we give results of methane flux measurement in the flooded forest zone of the Congo River basin in central Africa. Methane fluxes are measured by the static chamber method above threeExpand
Simple phenolic content in olive oil residues as a function of extraction systems
Olive oil residues were tested for their composition in simple phenolic compounds as a function of the extraction system, i.e. the three- and two-phase centrifugation systems. Phenolic compoundExpand
Clostridium methoxybenzovorans sp. nov., a new aromatic o-demethylating homoacetogen from an olive mill wastewater treatment digester.
On the basis of the phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic characteristics of the isolate, it is proposed to designate strain SR3T as Clostridium methoxybenzovorans sp. Expand
