[Microorganisms as possible indicators of soil pollution by dioxin-containing defoliants].

Abstract

The diversity of microorganisms from soils treated in the past with various dosages of dioxin-containing defoliants was studied. Population alterations dependent on dioxin concentrations were elucidated. Soil fungi and, to a smaller extent, actinomycetes were found to be the most sensitive to dioxins.
