Resistance of microbial populations in DDT-contaminated and uncontaminated soils

One DDT-contaminated soil and two uncontaminated soils were used to enumerate DDT-resistant microbes (bacteria, actinomycetes and fungi) by using soil dilution agar plates in media either with 150 mg DDT ml−1 or without DDT at different temperatures (25, 37 and 55 ◦C). Microbial populations in this study were significantly ( p<0.001) affected by DDT in the… (More)
