An assessment of synthetic landfill leachate attenuation in soil and the spatial and temporal implications of the leachate on bacterial community diversity.
The temporal fate of selected parameters, including redox potential; pH; phenol; nitrates; sulphates; copper and zinc, of a young synthetic acetogenic phase landfill leachate was assessed by perfusing a series of sequential ...
Biodeterioration of aluminium hot roll mill emulsions.
An in-depth study of the biodeterioration of the Hulett Aluminium hot roll mill emulsion, Prosol, was conducted. Samples of the emulsion in use at the hot roll mill were taken from various areas of the emulsion reticulation ...
Effects of management practices on soil organic matter content, soil microbial activity and diversity in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands.
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of land use and management practice on the soil organic matter content and the size, activity and diversity of the microbial biomass. These effects were investigated ...
Morphology, membrane characterization and detection of a bacterium associated with ratoon stunting disease of sugarcane.
Ratoon stunting disease (RSD) of sugarcane was first recognized in 1944 in Queensland, Australia (Steindl, 1961). The disease occurs worldwide and causes significant yield losses, especially during drought. RSD produces ...
Cloning of the endomannanase from Scopulariopsis candida LMK008 and evaluation of its effect on the digestibility on animal feed.
Present within the biodiverse hypersaline environment are a wide variety of halotolerant filamentous fungi. Many of these phytopathogens are capable of hydrolysing plant cell wall polysaccharides such as hemicellulose which ...
Characterization of 1, 2-DCA degrading Ancylobacter aquaticus strains isolated in South Africa.
1,2-Dichloroethane (1,2-DCA), a highly toxic and recalcitrant compound, is produced anthropogenically in larger quantities than any other chlorinated compound. It is regarded as a mutagen and carcinogen, thus making it ...
