[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Most probable number counts of bacteria in sediment samples from the Sediment Recruitment Experiment 4. Samples were taken immediately after the collection of sediment, after the addition of the oils to the sediment and after five weeks in-situ incubation.

Sediment was treated by the addition of oil (four different types: synthetic lubricant, used synthetic lubricant, biodegradable lubricant and ... View entire text
