Diversity and arsenic-tolerance potential of bacterial communities from soil and sediments along a gold tailing contamination gradient.

Abstract

Gold tailings often release arsenic (As) contaminants into the surrounding environment. Microorganisms play an important role in the As cycle, whereas the effects of As on bacterial communities remain unclear. To reveal the effects of As on the diversity of bacterial communities and their As-tolerance potential, farmland soil and river sediment samples were… (More)
