  • Aquatic Bacteria: Possible markers for monitoring arctic climate change

    The study, published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Early Edition, shows that bacterial communities in the six rivers shifted synchronously over time, correlating with seasonal shifts in hydrology and biogeochemistry. The research team documents these patterns through a three-year, circumpolar study of planktonic bacterial communities in the six largest rivers of ...

  • Shifts in soil bacteria linked to wetland restoration success

    A new study led by Duke University researchers finds that restoring degraded wetlands -- especially those that had been converted into farm fields -- actually decreases their soil bacterial diversity. But that’s a good thing, say the study’s authors, because it marks a return to the wetland soils’ natural conditions.“It sounds counter-intuitive, but our study shows that in restored wetlands, ...

  • Do nanoparticles affect the health of the soil ecosystem?

    New research reveals that many microorganisms, including bacteria and protozoa, show little sensitivity to fullerene nanoparticles applied to soil samples. However, fast-growing bacteria decreased in number and the genetic diversity of bacteria and protozoa altered slightly. This could affect the bottom of the food chain, which may have long-term implications for the overall health of the soil ...

  • Oil spills could be cleaned up by bacteria from underground petroleum reserves

    Bacteria taken from underground petroleum reserves could be used to effectively break down crude oil from spills at sea, new research has found. The study measured the breakdown of crude oil components in simulated seawater by four bacterial strains that had been isolated from petroleum reservoirs, as well as by four genetically modified stains. The findings raise the possibility of tailor-making ...
