Study Detail

TitleThe role of microbial mats in the removal of hexavalent chromium and associated shifts in their bacterial community composition
Study TypeOther
Abstract Microbial mats are rarely reported for chromium-polluted ecosystems, hence information on their bacterial diversity and role in chromium removal are very scarce. We investigated the role of microbial mats, collected from three quarry sumps of chromium mining sites, in the removal of hexavalent chrom .. [more]
