    Author : Karl Martin Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PICT; antifouling; periphyton; photosynthesis; D1; psbA; tolerance; resistance;

    Abstract : Toxicants can act as selective pressures in the environment, eliminating sensitive genotypes or species and favouring tolerant ones. Such toxicant-induced selection can be detected in natura... READ MORE

  2. 2. Pollution-Induced Community Tolerance (PICT) of Bacteria: Evaluation in Phenol- and Antibiotic Polluted Soil

    University dissertation from Section of Biological and Earth Sciences

    Author : Louise Aldén; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antibiotics; Bacteria; Community; Fungi; Leucine incorporation; Phenols; Soil; Pollution-Induced Community Tolerance PICT ;

    Abstract : The effects of organic pollutants on the soil microbial community were studied in this work. The main aim was to evaluate the use of pollution-induced community tolerance (PICT) in studying the effects of pollution. The leucine incorporation technique (indicating bacterial growth) was used to monitor changes in tolerance. READ MORE
