Bacteria culturing from geothermal soil samples collected from the summits of Mt Erebus and Mt Melbourne
Entry ID: K023_1994_1995_NZ_1

Abstract: Soil samples were collected from the summit of Mt Erebus and Mt Melbourne geothermal areas. Previous sampling of this area (1980) indicated the absence of bacteria which are common in other hot springs with similar pH and temperature profiles. The aim of this investigation was to confirm these findings and to determine the dominant bacteria at these sites. In addition, culturing of any novel ... View entire text
