Differential composition of bacterial communities as influenced by phenanthrene and dibenzo[a,h]anthracene in the rhizosphere of ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)


Bioremediation technologies of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) are often limited by the recalcitrance to biodegradation of high molecular weight (HMW) PAH. Rhizosphere is known to increase the biodegradation of PAH but little is known about the biodegradability of these HMW compounds by␣rhizosphere bacteria. This study compared the effects of a 3 and… (More)
