Increased levels of Cu in agricultural soils are of concern, because Cu toxicity may adversely affect important soil microorganisms, including pseudomonads. Because total metal concentrations correlate poorly with bioavailability and toxicity, a need exists for more information linking Cu speciation, bioavailability, and toxicity. The objective of the present study was to determine the bioavailability of different Cu complexes to Pseudomonas spp. A Cu-specific bioluminescent Pseudomonas… CONTINUE READING
