Additionally, two further facts should be considered; first, that some denitrifying bacteria are able to metabolize up to 20-25 [micro]M O2 while requiring significantly lower oxygen levels to grow and maintain high abundances in the environment (Ulloa et al., 2012).
and Pseudomonas putida [31], which were closely related to the autotrophic denitrifying bacteria. In this study, Bacillus sp., Aeromonas sp., and Pseudomonas sp.
Wetland plant species were found to have varying abundances of nirS denitrifying bacteria in their rhizospheres.
[57] stated that Anammox bacteria are not longer able to compete with heterotrophic denitrifying bacteria at C/N ratio above 1 while Chamchoi et al.
Denitrifying bacteria in OMZs have been known to produce nitrogen by reactions between nitrate or nitrate and the organic material that the bacteria eat.
However, it is very likely that the release of antibiotics from manure into groundwater may have a deleterious effect on naturally occurring denitrifying bacteria, consequently extending the residence of nitrate contamination in groundwater.
Similarly, the industrial production of ammonia eliminated bacteria-based constraints on releases of chemically active nitrogen, which cascades through ecosystems until finally removed by denitrifying bacteria (Galloway et al.
Nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria were enumerated on Winogradsky's medium (Pelczar et al.
The researchers' data indicate that dense populations of nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria in the wastewater recycling plant were the cause of these high nitrous oxide emissions.
The media of Bunt and Rovira (1955) and Martin (1950) were used to count the number of colony forming units (CFU) of total bacteria and fungi, respectively, and the media of Schmidt and Belser (1982) and Alexander (1965), were used to count the most probable number (MPN) of nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria, respectively.
