- Environmental implications of nanomaterials: are we studying the right thing?R F Turco
Crop, Soils and Environmental Sciences, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN 47907, USA
Curr Opin Biotechnol 22:527-32. 2011..In this paper we present ideas and concerns about the current state of knowledge on nanomaterials in the environment and present a number of points about what recent work has provided us about the novel materials...
- Accelerated degradation of N, N'-dibutylurea (DBU) upon repeated applicationM Bischoff
Department of Agronomy, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN 47907 1150, USA
Biodegradation 16:265-73. 2005..Microbial respiration was not affected by increasing DBU concentrations. These findings support the supposition that DBU is readily degraded by soil microorganisms, thus unlikely to accumulate in agricultural soils...
- Biodegradation of organic wastes containing surfactants in a biomass recycle reactorA Konopka
Department of Biological Sciences, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 47907, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 62:3292-7. 1996..However, the bioreactor system was still capable of rapidly metabolizing inputs of organic matter, because of the very high biomass concentrations. It appears that < 10% of the organic carbon inputs accumulate as biomass...
- Fate of the biological control agent Pseudomonas aureofaciens TX-1 after application to turfgrassW V Sigler
Department of Agronomy, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 47907, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 67:3542-8. 2001..aureofaciens TX-1 in irrigation water resulted in transient displacement of a leaf surface bacterial community member. There was no obvious alteration of any dominant members of the thatch and rhizosphere microbial communities...
