The population composition and biogeochemistry of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) in the rhizosphere of the marsh grass Spartina alterniflora was investigated over two growing seasons by molecular probing, enumerations of culturable SRB, and measurements of SO42- reduction rates and geochemical parameters. SO42- reduction was rapid in marsh sediments with rates up to 3.5 &mgr;mol ml-1 day-1. Rates increased greatly when plant growth began in April and decreased again when plants flowered in… CONTINUE READING
