Spatial microbial distributions of nitrifiers and heterotrophs in undefined mixed-population biofilms were experimentally investigated using a microslicer technique and correlated with nitrification efficiency of the biofilm system. The general stratification of different bacterial groups in the biofilm was simulated using a one-dimensional (1-D) mathematical biofilm accumulation model (BAM) and compared with the experimental results. Biofilms were cultured at three C : N ratios of feed… CONTINUE READING
