A litter bag experiment was carried out in a eutrophic seawater lake from autumn to summer in order to determine which bacterial genera play an important role in decomposition of Phragmites communis leaf litter. The count of cellulolytic bacteria and decomposition rate of litter cellulose increased rapidly during the initial month. In contrast, the count of cellulolytic fungi was lowest in this period. Pseudomonas accounted for 65–90% of total isolates of cellulolytic bacteria up to 5 months… CONTINUE READING
