With a profound knowledge of how physico-chemical parameters affect these communities, microbial communities could be used as indicators for environmental changes and for risk assessment studies. We studied aquatic hyphomycete communities in rivers and aquifers from sites shaped by intense mining activities (namely the "Mansfeld region") and chemical industry (cities of Halle and Bitterfeld) in Central Germany. Environmental stress factors such as high concentrations of heavy metals, sulphate… CONTINUE READING
