Heterogeneity of bacterial populations and pesticide degradation potentials in the unsaturated zone of loamy and sandy soils


Soil microbial processes play an important role in relation to pesticide pollution of groundwater, and may be strongly influenced by hydrological and geochemical properties. The consequences of such heterogeneous environments on bacterial biomass, enzymatic activities, carbon utilisation patterns, and pesticide mineralisation potentials in the unsaturated… (More)
