Identification of Petroleum Degrading Bacteria and Construction of Petroleum Degrading Agent

Xingling Tao, Yabin Zhan, Tao Jiang, Chuanjiong Hu
The aim of this study is to construct petroleum degrading agent (PDA) which can effectively degrade oil. By enrichment, domestication, and separation of culture from the soil sample of Qianjiang Guanghua Oilfield, the pure culture of three petroleum degrading bacteria G-40, G-53, and G-94 was identified from the medium supplemented with oil, which served as the sole source of carbon. The species of G-40 and G-53 were preliminarily

Research on the Microbial Community Structure of Wooden Relics and the Preservation of Water Environment: Illumina MiSeq Sequencing

Liu Tang, Jingjing Xing, Qiong Lei, Zuming Qiu, Jun Zhang, Li’an Ma
[Objective] Microorganisms are an important disease in archaeological wood lacquer. The effect of single microorganism on the erosion of wooden relics is small, but the microbial community is more harmful to the wooden relics. Therefore, it is very important to acquaint the microbial community structure of wooden relics and their preservation environment. [Methods] Illumina MiSeq sequencing method was used in this study to explore

Case Study of Baiyun and Caohai Lakes Implies How to Implement Wetland Restoration/Creation

Lin Xiao, Qun Zhang, Guifeng Wei, Sixi Zhu, Fanyang Yu, Boping Han
This work discusses how to implement wetland restoration/creation from the viewpoint that wetland aquatic plants are divided into four life forms: emergent, submergent, floating and floating leaf plants. Caohai Lake and Baiyun Lake were selected to discuss the difference of the species richness changes during the creation/restoration process. Baiyun Lake and eight surrounding wetlands have been selected to discuss how the species

Impact of Climate Change on the Global Environment and Associated Human Health

Zhiying Shi
As an important part of the natural environment on which human beings live, any change in climate will affect the natural ecosystem, social economy and human health. The impact of global climate change on human beings will be comprehensive, multi-scale and multi-layered. This paper mainly explores the research progress on the direct and indirect impacts of climate change on human health. It considers that

Bioremediation of Refinery Oil Contaminated Soil

Xingling Tao, Li-An Ma
Objective: In order to study low activity of petroleum-degrading strains. Methods: We added oil degrading strains to compost, the compost is made of soybean meal, corn flour, bran and sawdust, in the last, we added the oil degrading strains-compost contaminated soil. Result: The oil removal rates were determinated by gravimetric method. The oil removal rates of control group, oil contaminated soil compost grou

Effects of Sewage Treatment on Microbial Community Structure of Surface Water in Xiantao Wetland

Shufen Song, Fan Yang, Li-An Ma, Xiu-Fang Gao
[Objective] The aim of study is to research the treatment of urban sewage by the semi natural wetland method in the high connectivity water system of the surface water and surface water in the inland waterway. [Methods] Microbial diversity and community structure in the surface water of eight samples on the Xiantao artificial wetland were investigated by using the Illumina Miseq sequencing technique and the resulting microbial dat

Multitemporal Analysis of Coastal Erosion Based on Multisource Satellite Images in the South of the Mono Transboundary Biosphere Reserve in Togo (West Africa)

Yawo Konko, Bawinabadi Bagaram, Frédéric Julien, Kokouvi Gbétey Akpamou, Kouami Kokou
Climate change is affecting terrestrial and maritime ecosystems of Mono transboundary biosphere reserve and the whole Togolese coast. This research focuses both on the dynamics of the barrier beach and on spatial and temporal changes that affected the ocean coastline and its adjacent Lake Togo and Lake Boko during the period 1988-2018. The methodological approach adopted is based on a combination of optical and radar remote sensin

Microbial Inoculants Development for Bioremediation of Gasoline and Diesel Contaminated Soil

Aline Jaime Leal, Edmo Montes Rodrigues, Rita de Cássia Rocha Fernandes, Arnaldo Chaer Borges, Aline Daniela Lopes Júlio, Fernanda de Souza Freitas, Marcos Rogério Tótola
In this study, we describe the development of microbial inoculants for the bioremediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils through the enrichment of hydrocarbonoclastic populations in municipal solid waste compost (MSWC). Respirometric analyses were performed along with quantification of total heterotrophic bacteria and ester-linked fatty acid methyl ester (EL-FAME) profiling of the microbial communities o

Stakeholder and Public Participation in Water Quality Management: Case Study of University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) Lake

Doris Ifeoma Ogueri
Most urban/artificial lakes are created for relaxation, beautification and other recreational purposes. It is a way of bringing nature closer to the urban populace and lakes with better water quality contribute to a higher quality of life. Lake is an identity for all the three University of Nottingham Campuses in UK, China and Malaysia. Beautiful pictures showing the lake with the Trent building are mostly used in all marketing

Endogenous Forest Development Paradigm: Challenging Current Forest Conservation Practices in Ghana

Thomas Agana, Millar Katherine Kaunza, David Millar
The centre of Ghana development is land that plays a vital role. This article focused mainly on the rapid land degradation and deforestation due to bush fires, poorly managed grazing, farming and agricultural conversion, current forest/woodland governance systems and major policy gaps that were identified. A combination of methods used included: Extensive study of secondary literature/reports/programmes/write-ups (from 1999-2004),
