A novel quantitative ecological and microbial risk assessment methodology: theory and practice
(Taylor and Francis Inc., 2019)
© 2019, © 2019 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.The environment is a complex system where humans, materials (e.g. pollutants), and ecological (e.g. plants, animals, microbes) and meteorological conditions interact with each ...
Tracking earthworm-microbe interactions and GHG emissions in green sugarcane production.
(In: GLOBAL SOIL BIODIVERSITY CONFERENCE, 1., 2014, Dijon. Assessing soil biodiversity and role in ecosystem services: book of abstracts. [S.l.]: Global Soil Biodiversity Initiative, 2014., 2014)
A metagenomic approach to cyanobacterial genomics
Cyanobacteria, or oxyphotobacteria, are primary producers that establish ecological interactions with a wide variety of organisms. Although their associations with eukaryotes have received most attention, interactions with ...
Collateral effects of microplastic pollution on aquatic microorganisms: An ecological perspective
Microplastics (MP) provide a unique and extensive surface for microbial colonization in aquatic ecosystems. The formation of microorganism-microplastic complexes, such as biofilms, maximizes the degradation of organic ...
Analysis of the rhizosphere microbial communities of common beans resistant and susceptible to Fusarium oxysporum.
(In: CONGRESSO BRASILEIRO DE MICROBIOLOGIA, 28., Florianópolis. Anais... Florianópolis: Sociedade Brasileira de Microbiologia, 2015. Ref. 0568-1., 2015)
Cultivated bacterial diversity associated with the carnivorous plant Utricularia breviscapa (Lentibulariaceae) from floodplains in Brazil
Carnivorous plant species, such as Utricularia spp., capture and digest prey. This digestion can occur through the secretion of plant digestive enzymes and/or by bacterial digestive enzymes. To comprehend the physiological ...
Bacterial community associated with traps of the carnivorous plants Utricularia hydrocarpa and Genlisea filiformis
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-05-01)
The species of bacteria associated with the traps of the carnivorous plants Utricularia hydrocarpa Vahl and Genlisea filiformis A. St.-Hil. were identified by analysing 16S rRNA gene libraries. We observed larger bacterial ...
Fermentation of sugarcane juice and molasses for ethanol production
The quality of both sugarcane juice and molasses is affected by the nutrients and topology of the soil, variety of sugarcane, climate and harvesting. This chapter describes the natural microbial ecology of the ethanol ...
Characterization of Wild and Captive Baboon Gut Microbiota and Their Antibiotic Resistomes
(American Society for Microbiology, 2018)
Environmental microbes have harbored the capacity for antibiotic production for millions of years, spanning the evolution of humans and other vertebrates. However, the industrial-scale use of antibiotics in clinical and ...
