A marine bacterial strain, KMD 002T, was isolated from an Amur starfish, Asterias amurensis, collected in the East Sea of Korea. Strain KMD 002T was a Gram-negative, beige-pigmented, rod-shaped bacterium. The strain was capable of growth at relatively low temperatures (4-25 degrees C) and over a broad pH range (pH 4.0-10.0). The major fatty acids were(More)
Global warming is increasing the variability of climate change and intensifying hydrologic cycle components including precipitation, infiltration, evapotranspiration, and runoff. These changes increase the chance of more severe and frequent natural conditions, and limit ecosystem function and human activities. Adaptation to climate change requires(More)
A new bacterial strain designated DH39T was isolated from marine sediment collected from the East Sea, Korea. Phylogenetic analysis using the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that strain DH39(T) clustered with the genus Shewanella and is closely related to Shewanella canadensis HAW-EB2(T), S. woodyi MS32(T), and S. sediminis HAW-EB3(T) with 98.1, 97.8, and(More)
The diurnal vertical migration of Cochlodinium polykrikoides (C. polykrikoides), which caused a red tide in the Korean coastal waters of the East Sea/Sea of Japan in September 2003, was examined by determining the time-dependent changes in the density of living cells in relation to the depth of the water column. The ascent of this species into the surface(More)
