  • The floating aquatic plant of Azolla imbricata has an outstanding purification capability for polluted river water, and it is also employed to improve soil fertility. However, the occurrence and distribution of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in soil amended using A.imbricata remain unclear. In the soil amendment with A. imbricata, heavy metals, antibiotics, transposase genes, ARGs, and bacterial communities in the soil were determined in this study. The results indicated that the diversity… CONTINUE READING
