Record #191103:

Microbial bioremediation in polar environments: current status and future directions / Ronald M. Atlas.

Title: Microbial bioremediation in polar environments: current status and future directions / Ronald M. Atlas.
Author(s): Atlas, Ronald M.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: London: Taylor & Francis
In: Polar microbiology : the ecology, biodiversity and bioremediation potential of microorganisms in extremely cold environments. (2009.),
Abstract: Summarises current understanding of polar microbiology and future needs relating to bioremediation. Indigenous hydrocarbon-digesting microorganisms are present in polar marine and terrestrial ecosystems. It can be anticipated that, if there are coastal or terrestrial spills of crude or refined oils in Arctic or refined oils in Antarctic ecosystems, then microorganisms that can biodegrade contaminating hydrocarbons will be present. Further studies are needed to determine fate of oil under ice, and to characterise hydrocarbon degradation capabilities of indigenous microorganisms in order to develop predictive capability for use in strategies for treatment of spilled oil in polar regions.
