Stimulated by demands of the natural environment conservation, the need for thorough structural and functional identification of microorganisms colonizing different ecosystems has contributed to an intensive advance in research techniques. The article shows that some of these techniques are also a convenient tool for determination of the physiological state of single cells in a community of microorganisms. The paper presents selected fluorescent techniques, which are used in research on soil… Expand
Assessment of the bacterial community structure in a Brazilian clay soil treated with atrazine
TLDR
The overall bacterial community results show a lower diversity and evenness in the agricultural soil than in the unperturbed one, demonstrating how microbiological indicators are sensitive to anthropogenic disturbance. Expand
The effects of environmental parameters on the microbial activity in peat-bog lakes
TLDR
The results show that change in the amount of abiotic components such as DOC, TN, and TOC can result in stress, which may limit a function but does not lead to losing all other metabolic functions in the community-forming bacteria. Expand
Principal methods for isolation and identification of soil microbial communities
TLDR
Measuring and monitoring soil microbial communities can lead to better understanding of their composition and function in many ecosystem processes, and may ameliorate the effects of global climate change. Expand
Analysis of Attached Bacterial Community of Biological Activated Carbon Process Using FISH
TLDR
The concentration of organic compounds was analyzed at each step of BAC process though BDOCtotal/rapid/slow and FISH and ATP methods and γ-Proteobacteria group was the most population throughout the entire range. Expand
Evaluation of the distribution of fecal indicator bacteria in a river system depending on different types of land use in the southern watershed of the Baltic Sea
TLDR
The results indicate that land use type influenced FIB concentrations in river water, and the combined use of conventional and molecular methods improves the accuracy of fecal contamination analyses in river ecosystems. Expand
Environmental controls on the abundance of methanotrophs and methanogens in peat bog lakes.
TLDR
The nonmetrical multidimensional scaling (NMS) and partial least square regression (PLS-R) models showed that the methanotrophs in subsurface layers are positively associated with temperature, DOC, and TON while negatively associated with pH. Expand
Impact of environmental factors on bacterial communities in floodplain lakes differed by hydrological connectivity
Abstract We analysed total bacterial number and mean volume of cells at three sites in each of ten floodplain lakes in the Middle Basin of the Biebrza River, North-Eastern Poland to testExpand
A single-cell perspective on non-growing but metabolically active (NGMA) bacteria.
TLDR
It is argued that research on a closely related problem, which the authors shall refer to as the "non-growing but metabolically active" state, is poised to advance rapidly thanks to the recent development of novel technologies and methods for real-time single-cell analysis, including the combination of fluorescent reporter dyes and strains, microfluidic and microelectromechanical systems, and time-lapse fluorescence microscopy.

Flow Cytometry Applications in Food Safety Studies
Flow cytometry (FC) is a technique for the rapid analysis of multiple parameters of individual cells. One of the limitations of conventional methods for the analysis of cell populations is theExpand

In this review the applications of fluorescent probes for, e.g., determination of membrane integrity, enzyme activities, respiration, membrane potential and intracellular pH, are discussed in detail. Expand
Rapid direct methods for enumeration of specific, active bacteria in water and biofilms.
TLDR
Results obtained thus far indicate that immunomagnetic separation can provide a high degree of sensitivity in the recovery of seeded target bacteria (Escherichia coli O157:H7) in water and hamburger. Expand
Single-cell identification in microbial communities by improved fluorescence in situ hybridization techniques
TLDR
This Review provides an update on the recent methodological improvements that have allowed more reliable quantification of microbial populations in situ in complex environmental samples, with a particular focus on the usefulness of group-specific probes in this era of ever-growing rRNA databases.

Evaluation of cell activity and of methods for the cultivation of bacteria from a natural lake community
TLDR
Most of the bacteria in Zwischenahner Meer are able to grow and divide, but do not reach high cell densities even in improved culture media, therefore, the majority of bacteria may be classified as viable but nonculturable, but would not be detected by the CTC reduction method. Expand
Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization and Micro-autoradiography Applied to Ecophysiology in Soil
TLDR
How FISH-MAR can be used to quantify the specific microbial phylotype(s) responsible for a microbially catalyzed process and the capabilities and limitations of these techniques for linking microbial community structure and function are discussed. Expand
Determining the physiological status of individual bacterial cells
TLDR
This chapter determines the physiological status of individual bacterial cells in marine and estuarine water samples using microautoradiography with 16S ribosomal RNA-targeted oligonucleotide probes, which allows simultaneous in situ identification and determination of substrate uptake patterns of individual cells.

Factors influencing the detection of bacterial cells using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH): A quantitative review of published reports.
TLDR
It is argued that the optimization of the FISH protocol to describe the phylogenetic composition of bacterial assemblages will probably lead to techniques that are not effective to describeThe physiological state of cells. Expand
