Aims: This study aimed at demonstrating the ability of a mold species, isolated from a rice farm agricultural soil, chronically treated with glyphosate herbicide, to degrade glyphosate and to compare different evaluation methods of biodegradation. Study Design: A completely randomized design of a factorial experiment was used. Place and Duration of Study:    The study was conducted at the Department of Microbiology, University of Calabar, Nigeria between February and April. Methodology… Expand

The Effects of Multitasking and Tools Carried by Travelers Onboard on the Perceived Trip Time
Travelers conduct onboard activities while using the tools they bring with them onboard to convert part of their travel time to a productive time. Productive travel time contributes to the reductionExpand


Biodegradation of glyphosate herbicide in vitro using bacterial isolates from four rice fields
This study showed that P. fluorescens and Acetobacter exhibited a high capacity to efficiently degrade glyphosate under the environmental conditions studied, indicating that the isolated bacteria can tolerate up to 250 mg/ml of glyphosate. Expand

Results indicate that Bs-15 could be used to alleviate contamination from glyphosate-containing herbicides, increasing the microbial functional diversity in glyphosate-contaminated soils and thus enhancing the bioremediation of glyphosate-contained soils. Expand
Correlation among soil enzyme activities under different forest system management practices
Abstract Soil enzyme activities were performed in three permanent no-till and unfertilised plots located in the South of Salamanca province (Spain), the first in a Castanea sativa Mill. paraclimaxExpand
Glyphosate herbicide residue determination in samples of environmental importance using spectrophotometric method.
A simple selective spectrophotometric method has been developed for the determination of glyphosate herbicide in environmental and biological samples and was applied successfully to the environmental samples. Expand
Effect of glyphosate on soil microbial activity and biomass
Abstract Herbicides applied to soils potentially affect soil microbial activity. Quantity and frequency of glyphosate application have escalated with the advent of glyphosate-tolerant crops. TheExpand
Impact of glyphosate on the Bradyrhizobium japonicum symbiosis with glyphosate-resistant transgenic soybean: a minireview.
The studies indicate the potential for reduced nitrogen fixation in the GR soybean system; however, yield reductions due to this reduced N2 fixation in early stages of growth have not been demonstrated. Expand
Water Soluble Fraction of Crude Oil Uncouples Protease Biosynthesis and Activity in Hydrocarbonoclastic Bacteria; Implications for Natural Attenuation
Three hydrocarbonoclastic bacteria isolated from crude oil-impacted mesotidal waters of the Niger Delta area of Nigeria, and identified, by 16S rRNA sequencing, as Vibrio fluvialis OWPB63, SerratiaExpand
Cloning and sequencing of the genes involved in glyphosate utilization by Pseudomonas pseudomallei
Thirty-four strains of Pseudomonas pseudomallei isolated from soil were selected for their ability to degrade the phosphonate herbicide glyphosate and it was found that the hygromycin phosphotransferase genes from both P. pseudomlei and E. coli confer tolerance to glyphosate. Expand
Growth Profile and Hydrocarbonoclastic Potential of Microorganisms Isolated from Tarballs in the Bight of Bonny, Nigeria
Chromobacterium violaceum, Cladosporium resinae, Bacillus submarinus, Micrococcus varians, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida marina and Saccharomyces estuari were the most efficient utilizers and biodegraders while Corynebacterium glutamicum, Nocardia marina, and Cryptococcus albidus exhibited moderate growth in TMSM.
