AIMS To assess the degradation potential and plant colonization capacity of four alkane-degrading strains (ITSI10, ITRI15, ITRH76 and BTRH79) in combination with birdsfoot trefoil and Italian ryegrass and to evaluate the diversity of indigenous alkane-degrading soil bacteria in the rhizo- and endosphere. METHODS AND RESULTS Contaminated soil was prepared by spiking agricultural soil with 10 g diesel fuel per kg soil. Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum var. Taurus) and birdsfoot trefoil… CONTINUE READING
