Bacterial community dynamics and perennial crop growth in motor oil-contaminated soil in a boreal climate
Soil pollution by petroleum hydrocarbons (PHCs) as a result of anthropogenic activities poses significant threats in the environment. In particular, used motor oil that contains high concentrations of aliphatics, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and heavy metals (e.g. lead, zinc, chromium, barium and arsenic) contribute to chronic hazards including carcinogenicity. Microorganisms ...
