Soil microbial diversity in adjacent forest systems – contrasting native, old growth kauri (Agathis australis) forest with exotic pine (Pinus radiata) plantation forest
(Oxford University Press (OUP) on behalf of Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS), 2020-05)
Globally, the conversion of primary forests to plantations and agricultural landscapes is a common land use change. Kauri (Agathis australis) is one of the most heavily impacted indigenous tree species of New Zealand with ...
Influence of copper on expression of nirS, noRrB and nosZ and the transcription and activity of NIR, NOR and N₂O in the denitrifying soil bacteria Pseudomonas stutzeri
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2016-05)
Reduction of the potent greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N₂O) occurs in soil environments by the action of denitrifying bacteria possessing nitrous oxide reductase (N₂OR), a dimeric copper (Cu)-dependent enzyme producing ...
Mechanisms of pollution induced community tolerance in a soil microbial community exposed to Cu
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-07)
Pollution induced community tolerance (PICT) to Cu²⁺, and co-tolerance to nanoparticulate Cu, ionic silver (Ag⁺), and vancomycin were measured in field soils treated with Cu²⁺ 15 years previously. EC₅₀ values were determined ...
