Abstract Constructed wetlands (CWs) are considered to be effective for treating industrial wastewater. However, little is known with respect to the bacterial communities within these ecosystems. This study investigated arsenic and zinc removal in twelve mesocosm-scale CWs which differed from each other in substrate, flow and vegetation. Bacterial community diversity and composition of the different mesocosms-scale were compared by analysis of PCR-amplified 16S rRNA clone libraries. The free… CONTINUE READING
