Influence of Al on growth, cell size and content of intracellular water of Arthrobacter sp. PI/1-95
The presented results point to an osmo-regulative disorder connected with a malfunction of cell membrane and cell wall, which seems to be a probable mechanism for an Al-toxicity in connection with Arthrobacter sp. Expand
Mechanisms driving the soil organic matter decomposition response to nitrogen enrichment in grassland soils
Abstract Empirical studies show that nitrogen (N) addition often reduces microbial decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM) and carbon dioxide (CO2) production via microbial respiration. AlthoughExpand
Influence of nutrient solution on Al‐tolerance of Pseudomonas sp.
The Weibull function was shown to be well suited to describe toxic effects of Al on the microorganism under investigation and caused a distinct decrease in Al-availability and thus an apparent increase inAl-tolerance. Expand
Liming Alters the Soil Microbial Community and Extracellular Enzymatic Activities in Temperate Coniferous Forests
Soil acidification caused by anthropogenic activities adversely affects forest ecosystems by altering soil pH, which is an important factor in soil quality and function. Liming is one suggested wayExpand
Short-term phosphorus addition increases soil respiration by promoting gross ecosystem production and litter decomposition in a typical temperate grassland in northern China
Abstract Anthropogenic activities have increased phosphorus (P) deposition and affect ecosystem carbon cycles. Although soil respiration (Rs) is a vital part of terrestrial C fluxes, the responses ofExpand
Soil organic carbon dynamics: Impact of land use changes and management practices: A review
Abstract Global climate change has resulted in changes to the earth's geological, ecological, and biological ecosystems, which pose a severe threat to the existence of human civilization andExpand
A Heavy Metal Network: Connecting Remediation Strategies
Heavy metals in the environment are negatively affecting ecosystems and human life. The anthropogenic source of heavy metals has increased because of sludge from wastewater plants, tanneries,Expand


Calcium modifies pH effects on the growth of acid-tolerant and acid-sensitive Rhizobium meliloti
The Ca requirement for the growth of R. meliloti under acid conditions is much higher than previously thought and may have been inadequate for growth of some rhizobial strains at low pH. Expand
Siderophore production and iron transport in Rhizobium legummosarum bv. viciae MNF710
Abstract Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae MNF 710, an isolate from wild vetch in Japan, excretes an hydroxamate siderophore (maximum levels approximately 300 nmol ml‐1 Desferal equivalents) whenExpand
Aluminium toxicity and binding to Escherichia coli
Aluminium toxicity is related to pH-dependent speciation [with Al(H2O)63+probably being the active species] and chelation of aluminium in the medium and transport to intracellular binding sites may involve Fe(III) transport pathways. Expand
Biochemical basis of aluminium tolerance in plant cells
To be considered in this treatise are recent developments on biochemical aspects of aluminium tolerance and toxicity. Advances in aluminium biochemistry are best illustrated by knowledge gained inExpand
Biochemical mechanism of the toxicity of aluminium and the sequestration of aluminium in plant cells
Soil acidity is a major stress factor that influences the growth of many plants. Acid soils are located predominantly in the tropics and in cool temperature regions (Van Wambeke, 1976). AluminiumExpand
Calcium in bacteria: a solution to which problem?
Calcium and calcium‐binding proteins including those resembling calmodulin are implicated in numerous diverse processes in bacteria, suggesting major underlying principles of calcium metabolism metabolism which have yet to be discovered. Expand
Effects of pH and Al3+ activity on survival of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii in a simple solution and on nodulation of red clover in acid soils
It appeared that the Rhizobium strain was more important than soil factors in controlling nodulation in three Appalachian soils which had different soil solution pH and estimated Al3+ activities. Expand
Effects of soil acidity factors on interaction of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genotypes and Rhizobium strains: Symbiotic N-fixation, grain quality and grain yield in acid soils
Only two Rhizobium strains and two chickpea genotypes were found most suitable for low pH acid soil and simultaneous selection of acid-tolerant symbiont may be more useful. Expand
Fertility of acid soils
Soil acidity is represented by a set of factors that affect plant growth, aluminium toxicity being the most important. Lime requirement can be defined as the amount of lime necessary to reduce soilExpand
Identity of the rhizotoxic aluminium species
The aluminium (III) released from soil minerals to the soil solution under acid conditions may appear as hexaaquaaluminium (Al(H2O) 6 3+ , or Al3+ for convenience) or may react with available ligandsExpand
