Effect of Cadmium and Magnesium on Microbiological Activity in Soil

  title={Effect of Cadmium and Magnesium on Microbiological Activity in Soil},
  author={Jadwiga Wyszkowska and Mirosław Wyszkowski},
  journal={Polish Journal of Environmental Studies},
The aim of these experiments was to apply magnesium (50 and 100 mg Mg kg -1 soil) to neutralise the potentially negative effects of soil contamination by cadmium (10, 20, 30 and 40 mg Cd kg -1 soil) on the number of some groups of microorganisms. Another objective was to determine the relationship between the number of these microorganisms relative to yield of yellow lupine and some physicochemical properties of soil. Soil contamination with high rates of cadmium (30 and 40 mg Cd kg -1 of soil… Expand

Effects of heavy metals on soil microbial biomass carbon
This study was aimed at evaluating the effect of heavy metals on soil microbial processes. The effects of Lead (Pb) and Cadmium (Cd) at different concentrations were investigated over a period ofExpand
Effect of cadmium, copper and zinc on plants, soil microorganisms and soil enzymes.
Heavy metals when present in amounts equal to the geochemical background do not interfere with the soil metabolism, which is associated with the growth and development of soil microorganisms as wellExpand
Selected properties of cobalt-contaminated soil following the application of neutralising substances
Abstract The aim of the study was to determine the influence of increasing cobalt soil contamination (0 mg·kg−1, 20 mg·kg−1, 40 mg·kg−1, 80 mg·kg−1, 160 mg·kg−1, 320 mg·kg−1) after the application ofExpand

Chemical and Enzymatic Changes of Different Soils during Their Acidification to Adapt Them to the Cultivation of Highbush Blueberry
Although there has been an increase in the cultivation of highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) worldwide for several years now, the availability of suitable soils for this species remains aExpand
Efficiency of organic manuring and mineral fertilization regimes in potato brown rot suppression and soil microbial biodiversity under field conditions
The recommended fertilisation regime to suppress potato brown rot disease vary from soil to another according to different soil edaphic factors. Expand
Heavy metals and soil microbes
Heavy metal pollution is a global issue due to health risks associated with metal contamination. Although many metals are essential for life, they can be harmful to man, animal, plant andExpand
Impact of cadmium and lead on soil microbial biomass nitrogen of the botanical garden of ahmadu bello university, Zaria, Nigeria
Some of these heavy metals like Cu and Zn serve either as cofactor and activators of enzyme reactions e.g. informing enzymes/substrate metal complex5 or show an ability cause a chemical change suchExpand

  • 2012
The ecotoxicological effects of decabromodiphenyl ether (BDE209) and cadmium (Cd) contamination on soil culturable microbial population, enzyme activity and bacterial community structure were investigated and the synergistic combined effects of BDE209 and Cd were suggested. Expand
Effects of some heavy metal pollutants on fertility characteristics of an irrigated savannah alfisol.
This research was conducted on the irrigated soils along the banks of the Jakara River within the metropolitan Kano and its suburb. Soil samples were collected between latitude 11o59’ and 12o 08’NExpand


Influence of heavy metals on soil microbial activities
Abstract Studies were carried out to evaluate the influence of Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb, or Zn on the decomposition of organic matter in soils and on their microflora. The heavy metals were added toExpand
Effects of heavy metals in soil on microbial diversity and activity as shown by the sensitivity-resistance index, an ecologically relevant parameter
A sensitivity-resistance index was developed, and proved to be a very sensitive biomonitor of soil pollution with heavy metals. The index was developed by a step-by-step approach. Ultimately, theExpand
Populations of Cd-tolerant microorganisms in soils polluted with heavy metals
Abstract In order to estimate the effect of heavy metal pollution on soil microorganisms, field surveys were carried out in paddy fields, upland fields, and fallow paddy fields located in two areasExpand
Effects of Heavy Metal Contamination on Soil Microbial Population
Abstract In order to estimate the effect of heavy metal pollution on soil microorganisms, a field survey was carried out in a heavy-metal-contaminated (Cd, 1.1-2.7 mg/ kg soil; Zn, 234-571 mg/kgExpand
Phytoremediation of heavy metal-contaminated soils: natural hyperaccumulation versus chemically enhanced phytoextraction.
Phytoextraction of Cd and Zn by maize + EDTA was much smaller than that by T. caerulescens from the industrially contaminated soil, and was either smaller (Cd or similar (Zn) from the agricultural soil. Expand
Oligotrophic bacteria on organic debris and plant roots in a paddy field soil
In both manured and unmanured soils, D NB organisms were predominant in the bacterial communities on organic debris and the rice roots throughout most of the entire period of rice cultivation, although a transient decrease in the proportion of DNB organisms was observed immediately after an application of manure.
