The impact of elevated temperature on bacterial community structure and function during aerobic biological wastewater treatment was investigated. Continuous cultures, fed a complex growth medium containing gelatin and α-lactose as the principal carbon and energy sources, supported mixed bacterial consortia at temperatures ranging from 25–65°C. These temperature- and substrate-acclimated organisms were then used as inocula for batch growth experiments in which the kinetics of microbial growth… CONTINUE READING
