Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This paper aims to investigate the impact of anthracene addition on microbial community in agricultural soil irrigated with tap water or reclaimed wastewater.

METHODS:

The changes of microbial community were characterized by terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism in combination with 16S rRNA gene clone library analysis.

RESULTS:

A significant change in microbial community composition was observed during the biodegradation of anthracene, with dominantly enriched members from the genus Methylophilus.

CONCLUSION:

This work might be useful for developing techniques for the isolation of novel putative PAH degrader.
