Title: Bacteria in heavy metal contaminated soil: diversity, tolerance and use in remediation
Authors: Pires, Carlos
Supervisors: Magan, Naresh
Castro, Paula
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: The objectives of this project were to determine the bacterial diversity in a heavily contaminated metal region of Portugal. Both traditional and molecular based methods were used to identify tolerant strains and species. The most tolerant species were subsequently identified and utilized for examining the potential for using them to immobilize specific metals from contaminated waste streams by comparing different support materials.
