An anaerobic microbial consortium able to biodegrade saturation levels of perchloroethylene (PCE) in a column containing a source zone of PCE was examined phylogenetically to determine microbial community structure and spatial variation in relation to the PCE source. The consortium was comprised of at least 34 members with 7 organisms sharing affiliations with known respiratory or cometabolic dechlorinators. Seven other organisms had their closest phylogenetic relative detected in other… CONTINUE READING
