As a part of a study conducted on the fate of xenobiotics in the environment, a selection of 90 strains of micromycetes, mostly isolated from soil and belonging to various taxonomic groups, have been cultivated in liquid synthetic medium with chlortoluron (100 mg.L-1), diuron (20 mg.L-1), and isoproturon (100 mg.L-1) for 5 days. Evaluation of the chemicals in the culture media was made by HPLC. Our results show a wide variation not only with taxonomic groups but also with the species, and with… CONTINUE READING
