PurposeAs artificial islands created by accumulation of sediments and litters, chinampas formed a unique and sustainable agro-ecosystem. However, no investigation on the chinampa microbial communities has been reported. With the goal of revealing the soil bacterial communities in the chinampas and their changes influenced by environmental conditions, soils were sampled for determining their bacterial communities.Materials and methodsSoil samples were collected from a cultivated and an abandoned… Expand

Aerobiological study of bacterial and fungal community composition in the atmosphere of Mexico City throughout an annual cycle.
The results indicated that the evident changes in microbial composition were related more to seasonality than to locality, since both UA and SRA showed a high degree of urbanization, despite some differences in land use. Expand
Pyrosequencing-based assessment of soil microbial community structure and analysis of soil properties with vegetable planted at different years under greenhouse conditions
Abstract Soil microbes play an important role in maintaining soil health, and identifying microbial changes in greenhouse soils is vital for improving soil quality. This study was aimed toExpand
Responses of denitrifying bacterial communities to short-term waterlogging of soils
The results indicated that the composition ofDenitrifying microbial communities but not the abundance of denitrifiers in soil was responsive to short-term waterlogging of an agricultural soil ecosystem. Expand
Bacterial Root Microbiome of Plants Growing in Oil Sands Reclamation Covers
The results suggest that bacterial endophytic communities of plants growing in land reclamation systems are a subset of the rhizosphere community and selection is driven by plant factors. Expand
Seasonal and Interannual Fluctuation of the Microbial Soil Community in a Maize Field under Long-Term Conservation Agriculture Management

Influence of Altered Microbes on Soil Organic Carbon Availability in Karst Agricultural Soils Contaminated by Pb-Zn Tailings
The results indicate that the most abundant groups of bacteria, especially the uncultured facultative Deltaproteobacteria GR-WP33-30 (OTU 24), after long-term acclimation in heavy metal-contaminated soil, are associated with the variance of labile carbon source such as L-asparagine and may have considerable control over the stability of the vast SOC pool in karst surface soils with different agricultural land-use practices.

Contribution of soil variables to bacterial community composition following land use change in Napahai plateau wetlands.
The data suggested that the compositional alterations of microbial communities following land-use change were likely realized through modifications in the availability of primary soil nutrients in the Napahai plateau wetlands. Expand
High-throughput sequencing analysis of bacterial community spatiotemporal distribution in response to clogging in vertical flow constructed wetlands.
Clustering analysis of bacterial composition in the operational taxonomic units (OTUs) at the phylum and genus levels had a consistent trend, namely, that bacterial communities were more similar at similar column depths. Expand
Natural Farming Improves Soil Quality and Alters Microbial Diversity in a Cabbage Field in Japan
Natural farming (NF), an environmentally friendly agricultural practice similar to organic farming, was developed in Japan. Unlike conventional farming, little is known about the influence of NF onExpand
Variations in pH significantly affect cadmium uptake in grafted muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) plants and drive the diversity of bacterial communities in a seedling substrate.
It is demonstrated that pH greatly affects Cd uptake in grafted muskmelon plants and predicts microbial community structures in breeding substrates with different pH levels and suggested that Cd accumulation in grafting plants can be reduced by setting the appropriate substrate pH. Expand


Characterization of bacterial communities in soil and sediment of a created riverine wetland complex using high-throughput 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing
Although the species-specific composition of bacterial communities of soils in transitional areas of freshwater marshes and oxbow and between two types of permanently inundated soils was similar, the network analysis revealed different interactions within bacterial communities in these environments.

Pyrosequencing Reveals Bacterial Diversity in the Rhizosphere of Three Phragmites australis Ecotypes
High-throughput DNA pyrosequencing of different P. australis ecotypes provided insight into the structural variation of the rhizosphere bacterial community, which gave a database for the use of bacteria in the protection and ecological restoration of wetland. Expand
Pyrosequencing reveals a contrasted bacterial diversity between oak rhizosphere and surrounding soil.
Using high-throughput next generation 454 pyrosequencing, this work deeply investigated the diversity of bacterial communities colonizing the oak rhizosphere niche and the surrounding soil, suggesting an oak Rhizosphere effect. Expand
Characterisation of the soil bacterial community structure and composition of natural and constructed wetlands.
Beta diversity analyses reveal that the soil bacterial communities in the natural wetland were less dissimilar to each other than to those of the constructed wetland, and the Proteobacteria phylum was more abundant in the constructing wetland than the natural one. Expand
