Micromycetes were isolated from PAHS-contaminated sediment and identified. They were investigated for pyrene degradation (10 mg l-1) in liquid synthetic medium for two days. Among the 41 strains isolated, 10 highly degraded pyrene (> 2.4 mg g-1 dry weight): two Zygomycetes (Mucor racemosus, M. racemosus var. sphaerosporus), 6 Deuteromycetes (Gliocladium virens, Penicillium simplicissimum, P. janthinellum, Phialophora alba, P. hoffmannii, Trichoderma harzianum), a Dematiaceae (Scopulariopsis… CONTINUE READING
