Microbial data from the Macquarie Island Respirometry Experiment 2006
Entry ID: MI_microcosm2006_microbial_data

Abstract: A microcosm experiment utilising a respirometry system and 14C-labelled hexadecane was initiated to investigate the effects of differing oxygen regimes on hydrocarbon degradation in soil from sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island. Measurements of oxygen consumed, carbon dioxide produced, total petroleum hydrocarbon degradation and nitrate and ammonium concentrations were made. The microbial community ... View entire text
