Geographic distance and amorphous iron affect the abundance and distribution of Geobacteraceae in paddy soils in China
It is demonstrated that Geobacteraceae community composition was strongly associated with geographic distance and soil chemical factors including aFe, pH, Fe, DOC, C:N, and NO3−-N and that both geographicdistance and soil properties governed Geobactersaceae biogeography in paddy soils.
Negative Feedback by Vegetation on Soil Organic Matter Decomposition in a Coastal Wetland
There has been much debate about the external drivers that affect the decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM). Particularly, the feedback mechanisms between SOM and mineral weathering are poorly

It is submitted that engineering a self-replicating machine opens up new areas of astrobiology to be explored in the limits of life.
Climate warming can be caused by global changes due to emissions of the greenhouse gases, which are mainly carbon dioxide and methane. Although vertical migration of hydrocarbons (seepages) to the
Amount, composition and turnover of organic matter in topsoils and subsoils under mature beech forest
Diese Arbeit wurde von der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft im Rahmen der Forschergruppe 1806 ‘The Forgotten Part of Carbon Cycling: Organic Matter Storage and Turnover in Subsoils(SUBSOM)’)
Fe(II) Interactions with Smectites: Temporal Changes in Redox Reactivity and the Formation of Green Rust.
The results demonstrate that long-term studies are recommended to accurately predict contaminant management strategies and hypothesized that the temporal increase in reduction potential results from clay mineral dissolution resulting in increased Fe(III) contents in the Cl-GR.
The role of oxygen conditions in the microbial dissolution of biogenic silica under brackish conditions
Regeneration of biogenic silica (BSi) is essential for the constant supply of dissolved silica (DSi) to diatoms in aquatic ecosystems, where these primary producers play an important role in carbon
The Relevance of Phosphorus and Iron Chemistry to the Recovery of Phosphorus from Wastewater: A Review.
It is suggested that the current poor understanding of iron and phosphorus chemistry in wastewater systems is preventing processes being developed to recover phosphorus from iron-phosphorus rich wastes like municipal wastewater sludge.
Comparison of Rock Varnish Bacterial Communities with Surrounding Non-Varnished Rock Surfaces: Taxon-Specific Analysis and Morphological Description
The features emerging from this analysis suggest that the highly oxidative Fe and Mn-rich varnish environment favors anoxigenic autotrophy and establishment of highly specialized bacteria.

Paleoecological Significance of the Banded Iron-Formation
  • P. Cloud
  • Environmental Science, Geology
  • 1973
Banded iron-formation (BIF) is rare in rocks younger than about 2 aeons (years X 10 9 ). It records a major episode of chemical iron sedimentation, however, at about 2 to 2.1 aeons, just before the
Mineral Theories of the Origin of Life and an Iron Sulfide Example
If we really believe that a process of Darwinian evolution started on the Earth without the help of miracles, spacemen or whatever, then the first organisms (by which we mean the first systems able
Fe-Cycle Bacteria from Industrial Clays Mined in Georgia, USA
Dark Fe oxides and sulfides are major discoloring impurities in mined commercial white kaolin clay. In order to evaluate the potential influence of Fe-cycle bacteria on Fe cycling during
Naphthalene and Benzene Degradation under Fe(III)-Reducing Conditions in Petroleum-Contaminated Aquifers
Naphthalene was oxidized anaerobically to CO2 in sediments collected from a petroleum-contaminated aquifer in Bemidji, Minnesota in which Fe(III) reduction was the terminal electron-accepting
Anaerobic Benzene Oxidation in the Fe(III) Reduction Zone of Petroleum-Contaminated Aquifers
The potential for anaerobic benzene oxidation in the Fe(III)-reduction zone of petroleum-contaminated aquifers was evaluated. Sediments were incubated under strict anaerobic conditions without any
