Wetlands pollution is of great concern given their importance to conservation and as water and food sources for the local population. Therefore, microbial and chemical investigations were carried out on the Lerma (Chimaliapan) and Almoloya del Río (Chiconahuapan; both Ramsar sites) wetland samples in Mexico for risk assessment purposes. 16S rRNA-based clone library analyses showed the prevalence of Enterobacteriaceae, specifically the genus Shigella and E. coli species in both wetlands. While… Expand

Distribution and enrichment of trace metals and arsenic at the upper layer of sediments from Lerma River in La Piedad, Mexico: case history
Lerma River is one of the largest rivers in Mexico. Over the past 20 years, unplanned population growth occurred along its course and the river has been used as the only outlet for industrial andExpand
Comprehensive water testing analyses for improved water management: coliforms, coliphage and cholesterol
The use of faecal coliforms as indicators is the traditional approach of testing water quality. Unfortunately, for a comprehensive water quality analysis, there is an increasing body of evidence thatExpand

Impact of chromium and aluminium pollution on the diversity of zooplankton: A case study in the Chimaliapan wetland (Ramsar site) (Lerma basin, Mexico)
TLDR
Data analyses using multifactorial techniques suggested that zooplankton can be used to evaluate the impact of the metals aforementioned, since these organisms are generally more sensitive than other groups and also have a high ecological relevance. Expand
Comprehensive Assessment of Bacterial Communities and Analysis of PCB Congeners in PCB-Contaminated Sediment with Depth
TLDR
Evaluation of a single sediment core from the Grasse River is described using a combination of molecular techniques to provide detailed insight of dechlorination potential and population numbers of putative PCB-related organisms in the sediments. Expand
Heavy metals in sediments of a large, turbid tropical lake affected by anthropogenic discharges
Abstract Bottom-water data and trace metal concentration of Cu, Cr, Ni, Pb, Co, Zn, and organic matter in surficial sediment samples from 13 sampling stations of Lake Chapala in Mexico were studied.Expand
Contamination of Paddy Soil by Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals Affects Soil Microbe Abundance and Diversity
TLDR
It was clear that EDCs can significantly affect paddy soil microbial diversity, both with respect to population size and species representation, and showed that DBP was less damaging than NP50. Expand
Occurrence and diversity of epiphytic bacterial communities on two native plant species in a Michigan Creek
TLDR
Bacteria of different phylogenetic groups in epiphytic assemblages on two native Michigan plant species mayapple and cow parsnip when the plant leaves were submerged in fresh water showed dominance of members of the γ-Proteobacterial subclass on both plant species, while community diversity was determined based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing.

Biogeochemical behaviour of plutonium during anoxic biostimulation of contaminated sediments
Abstract Understanding the biogeochemical behaviour of actinides in the environment is essential for the longterm stewardship of radionuclide contaminated land. Plutonium is of particular concern dueExpand
Comparison of indigenous and exogenous microbial populations during slurry phase biodegradation of long-term hydrocarbon-contaminated soil
TLDR
The addition of activated sludge and nutrients to slurries (bioaugmentation) resulted in enhanced hydrocarbon removal compared to treatments receiving only nutrients (enhanced natural attenuation [ENA]; 41.3 ± 6.4 %) and this data suggests that the microbial community in theactivated sludge inoculum contributed to the enhanced removal of hydrocarbons in ENA slurries.

Accumulation of short-chain fatty acids in an aquitard linked to anaerobic biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons
Abstract Investigation of a 17 m vertical profile of a silt and clay aquitard at a natural gas well site in Alberta, Canada revealed a contaminant plume of gas condensate, along with highExpand
Identification of natural, anthropogenic and petroleum hydrocarbons in aquatic sediments.
TLDR
Examples from marine and estuarine environments around Australia are presented to illustrate the use of modern analytical techniques to identify, quantify and determine the origins of hydrocarbons in aquatic sediments. Expand
Epilithic diatoms (Bacillariophyceae) as indicators of water quality in the Upper Lerma River, Mexico
TLDR
This is the first study in an environmental direction of the diatoms of the upper Lerma River basin and the information generated will be used to propose, in the short-term, a LermaRiver diatom index (IDL), supporting water quality monitoring programs. Expand
