Phosphorus uptake of bacterial isolates from eutrophic river systemAuthor(s):
Reyes Alvin T and James Juan Carlo PAbstract:
The general objective of this study was to isolate and screen bacteria from eutrophic river system that luxuriously uptake phosphorus. Six bacterial colonies were differentiated based on cultural characters. Except isolate 1, the remaining five isolates could reduce the phosphorus concentration in flasks by more than 50% after 72 hours. Isolate 4 had the lowest final phosphorus concentration (2.85±0.23 g/L), thus, had the highest percent phosphorus reduction (59.95%). The per cent phosphorus reduction of the six isolates after 72 hours was not statistically significant when compared, therefore, any of the six isolates once identified could be used in future bioremediation studies.Pages: 139-141 | 375 Views 8 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
