Manganese Oxidation by Bacterial Isolates from the Indian Ridge System

Abstract

The abundance and activity of culturable manganese-oxidizing bacteria were assessed from near-bottom water samples of the tectonically active Carlsberg Ridge. Retrievable counts as colony forming units (CFU) on dilute nutrient agar medium (dilNA = 2 gm l−1 nutrient broth+2% agar) and on dilNA supplemented with 1, 2 and 3 mM MnCl2·4H2O were in the order of… (More)
