Experiments were undertaken to explain the occurrence of a high denitrification capacity in anaerobic, NO(3)-free habitats. Deep layers of freshwater sediments that were buried more than 40 years ago and digested sludge were the habitats studied. The denitrifier populations were 3.1 x 10 and 3.1 x 10 cells cm in deep sediments from a river and lake, respectively, and 5.3 x 10 cells cm in digested sludge. The denitrification capacities of the samples reflected the population densities. Strict… CONTINUE READING
