AIMS To study the effects of competitive microbiota, temperature and nutrient availability on Salmonella, Enterococcus, Campylobacter spores of sulphite reducing anaerobes and bacteriophages MS2 and phiX174 in sediments from a greywater treatment system. METHODS AND RESULTS Standard culture methods were used. Bacteria died off rapidly under normal conditions (20 degrees C, competitive microbiota) but remained stable or grew in the other conditions studied. When the sediments became nutrient… CONTINUE READING
