We evaluated the relationship between microbial biomass C and N (BC and BN) as estimated by the chloroform fumigation-extraction (CFE) method and microbial biomass DNA concentration in a loam-clayey wheat cultivated soil. The soil received municipal solid waste compost at rates of 40 or 80 t ha−1 and farmyard manure at 40 t ha−1. Microbial biomasses C and N(More)
The aim of this study was to assess whether soil microbial biomass could be used as an indicator of environmental changes following the application of organic residue (compost of municipal solid waste and farmyard manure) or mineral fertilizers (N and P) into cultivated or uncultivated loam-clayey soil, for three consecutive years. The carbon and nitrogen(More)
Microbial characterization of composting is of importance for the optimization of the process and the quality of the end product. The aim of this work was to follow microbial biomass C and N dynamics during the composting process of urban solid waste. Microbial biomass C (B(C)) ranged from 4.06 to 1 microg kg(-1) of dry compost from day 5 to day 62 and(More)
This study investigates the molecular typing occurrence of staphylococcal communities during composting process of municipal solid waste. One hundred staphylococcal strains were isolated during the composting process and analysed either by phenotypic and genotypic methods.
