Evidence is mounting that soil microorganisms can become increasingly tolerant to metals on exposure. However, in situ investigations regarding the effects of metals, particularly Cu and Ni, on specific soil functions/communities are still limited in number. Here, we investigated whether preexposure of nitrifying bacteria to Cu or Ni can induce increased tolerance to these metals. We also investigated whether changes in the tolerance of populations exposed to Cu under field conditions (long… CONTINUE READING
