Influence of high salinity on biofilm formation and benzoate assimilation by Pseudomonas aeruginosa


Pseudomonas species were used in bioremediation technologies. In situ conditions, such as marine salinity, could limit the degradation of hydrocarbons and aromatic compounds by the bacteria. Biofilm ability to tolerate environmental stress could be used to increase biorestoration. In this report, we used scanning confocal laser microscopy and microtiter… (More)
