We performed a longitudinal study (repeated observations of the same sample over time) to investigate both the composition and structure of temporal changes of bacterial community composition in soil mesocosms, subjected to three different treatments (water and 5 or 25 mg kg−1 of dried soil Cd2+). By analogy with the pan genome concept, we identified a core(More)
Restriction analysis of amplified 16S rDNA from bacterial strains isolated from soil was used to evaluate the effects of swine manure and urea fertilisation on indigenous populations of the plant growth promoting bacterium, Azospirillum brasilense, in corn-cultivated experimental plots. Several operational taxonomic units (OTUs) were found among the(More)
