AIMS To generate field-relevant inactivation rates for Cryptosporidium oocysts in soil that may serve as parameter values in models to predict the terrestrial fate and transport of oocysts in catchments. METHODS AND RESULTS The inactivation of Cryptosporidium oocysts in closed soil microcosms over time was monitored using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) as an estimate of oocyst 'viability'. Inactivation rates for Cryptosporidium in two soils were determined under a range of… CONTINUE READING
