  • Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) bacteria, which were discovered in waste-water sludge in the early 1990s, have the unique metabolic ability to combine ammonium and nitrite or nitrate to form nitrogen gas. This discovery led to the realization that a substantial part of the enormous nitrogen losses that are observed in the marine environment — up to 50% of the total nitrogen turnover — were due to the activity of these bacteria. In this Timeline, Gijs Kuenen recalls the discovery of these… CONTINUE READING
