Organisms of the class Alphaproteobacteria, order Rhizobiales (represented by the genera Caulobacter, Shinella, and possibly Novosphingobium) were found mainly during the slower phase of degradation, when nutrient availability consisted only in more refractory compounds at limiting amounts, reflecting the group usual dominance in oligotrophic systems (Barlett and Leff, 2010).
