Human bone is considered one of the most direct and insightful sources of information on peoples of the past. As a result, curation protocols have been developed to ensure that the integrity of human skeletal collections is maintained. Although collections are generally considered safe when these...
Microelectrodes can be used for profiling environmental biofilms. Currently there is no sulfate microelectrode available for studying sulfate reduction in biofilms. In this study, a sulfate microelectrode was fabricated and tested in measurement of environmental biofilms for the first time. The...
Bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus can be found associated with plants, insects and vertebrate hosts, and their lifestyle can range from free-living to strictly host specific. Of the lactobacilli associated with vertebrates, the lifestyle of L. reuteri is particularly well understood. The...
Many spring deposits throughout the world are characterized by spectacular deposits of calcium carbonate that are formed of various combinations of aragonite and calcite, and in very rare cases vaterite. The factors that control the precipitation of the aragonite and calcite have been the subject...
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that forms chronic biofilm infections in the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients. A major component of the biofilm during these infections is the exopolysaccharide alginate, which is synthesized at the inner membrane as a homopolymer of 1–4-linked...
Modern travertine precipitation at Lýsuhóll hot springs, Snæfellnes, Iceland: implications for calcite crystal growth.Download
Three thermal springs, at Lýsuhóll on Snæfellnes Peninsula on the west coast of Iceland, with vent water temperatures of 20 to 46°C are characterized by thriving microbial mats that mediate the precipitation of opal-A, Fe-rich opal-A, Fe-rich reticulate coatings, and calcite that are intermixed...
Ichnology concerns the study of interactions between organisms and both soft and hard substrates. Actualistic observation of a modern day river channel molluscan assemblage including unionid and sphaeriid bivalves and gastropods within the Saint John River, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada...
The study of methanogenesis in wastewater biofilms and various aggregated methanogenic environmental samples with high spatial resolution can be achieved by using microbiosensor techniques. In this study, the fabrication of a microbiosensor for methane detection was studied. This microbiosensor...
Productivity and carbon accumulation potential of transferred biofilms in reclaimed oil sands-affected wetlandsDownload
Biofilms are significant contributors to primary production, nutrient cycling, bio-stabilization and the food web of wetland ecosystems. Photoautotrophic biomass (PB) and primary production (PP) were determined for biofilms exposed to various treatments and materials in wetlands near Fort...
