This work examined the effect of long-term arsenic (As) and DDT contamination on soil microbial properties at 11 cattle dip sites in northern New South Wales, Australia. Total As in the surface (0-10 cm) soils from these sites ranged from 34 to 2941 mg As kg(-1) soil and hexane-extractable DDT concentrations ranged between 2.9 and 7673 mg DDT kg(-1) soil. The concentrations of water and oxalate-extractable As were positively correlated with total As. Oxalate-extractable As was more strongly… CONTINUE READING
