Quantitative analyses of the abundance and composition of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria and ammonia-oxidizing archaea of a Chinese upland red soil under long-term fertilization practices.
TLDR
Significant positive correlations were observed among the population sizes of AOB and AOA, soil pH and potential nitrification rates, indicating that both AOBand AOA played an important role in ammonia oxidation in the soil.
Mechanisms of silicon-mediated alleviation of abiotic stresses in higher plants: a review.
TLDR
The key mechanisms of Si-mediated alleviation of abiotic stresses in higher plants include: stimulation of antioxidant systems in plants, complexation or co-precipitation of toxic metal ions with Si, immobilization of toxicMetal ions in growth media, uptake processes, and compartmentation of metal ions within plants.
Abundance and composition of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria and ammonia-oxidizing archaea communities of an alkaline sandy loam.
TLDR
It is suggested that long-term fertilization had a significant impact on AOB abundance and composition, while minimal on AOA in the alkaline soil, and significant correlations with soil pH and potential nitrification rates.
An inventory of trace element inputs to agricultural soils in China.
TLDR
The inputs of trace elements to agricultural soils via atmospheric deposition, livestock manures, fertilizers and agrochemicals, sewage irrigation and sewage sludge in China were analyzed and an annual inventory of trace element inputs was developed.
Diverse and abundant antibiotic resistance genes in Chinese swine farms
TLDR
Diverse, abundant, and potentially mobile ARGs in farm samples suggest that unmonitored use of antibiotics and metals is causing the emergence and release of ARGs to the environment.
Transfer of metals from soil to vegetables in an area near a smelter in Nanning, China.
TLDR
Results showed that both soils and vegetables from villages 1 and 2 were heavily contaminated, compared to a village 50 km from the smelter, and oral intake of Cd and Pb through vegetables poses high health risk to local residents.
Geographical variation in total and inorganic arsenic content of polished (white) rice.
TLDR
Using country-specific rice consumption data, daily intake of inorganic arsenic was estimated and the associated internal cancer risk was calculated using the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cancer slope.
Soil contamination in China: current status and mitigation strategies.
TLDR
Comparisons with other regions of the world show that the current status of soil contamination, based on the total contaminant concentrations, is not worse in China, however, the concentrations of some heavy metals in Chinese soils appear to be increasing at much greater rates.
Exposure to inorganic arsenic from rice: a global health issue?
TLDR
Given the arsenic levels measured in food and water and consumption of these items, cooked rice and vegetables are a substantial exposure pathway for inorganic arsenic.
Sewage sludge biochar influence upon rice (Oryza sativa L) yield, metal bioaccumulation and greenhouse gas emissions from acidic paddy soil.
TLDR
SSBC can be beneficial in rice paddy soil but the actual associated benefits will depend on site-specific conditions and source of SS; long-term effects remain a further unknown.
