Chapter
Methane (CH4) is a potent greenhouse gas significantly contributing to the climate warming we are currently facing. Microorganisms play an important role in the global CH4 cycle that is controlled by the balance between anaerobic production via methanogenesis and CH4 removal via methanotrophic oxidation. Research in recent decades advanced our unde...

Groundwater contamination of geogenic arsenic (As) remains a global health threat, particularly in south-east Asia. The prominent correlation often observed between high As concentrations and methane (CH4) stimulated the analysis of the gas dynamics in an As contaminated aquifer, whereby noble and reactive gases were analysed. Results show a progre...
Article
Full-text available
Although arsenic (As) groundwater contamination in South and Southeast Asia is a threat to human health, mechanisms of its release from sediment to groundwater are still not fully understood. In many aquifers, Fe(III) minerals are often the main hosting phases for As and their stability is crucial for As mobility. Recently, a new mechanism for As m...
Article
Full-text available
Geogenic arsenic (As) contamination of groundwater is a health threat to millions of people worldwide, particularly in alluvial regions of South and Southeast Asia. Mitigation measures are often hindered by high heterogeneities in As concentrations, the cause(s) of which are elusive. Here we used a comprehensive suite of stable isotope analyses and...
Article
High arsenic (As) concentrations in groundwater are a worldwide problem threatening the health of millions of people. Microbial processes are central in the (trans)formation of the As-bearing ferric and ferrous minerals, and thus regulate dissolved As levels in many aquifers. Mineralogy, microbiology and dissolved As levels can vary sharply within...
Article
Full-text available
Fe(III) minerals play a crucial role for arsenic (As) mobility in aquifers as they usually represent the main As-bearing phases. Microbial reductive dissolution of As-bearing Fe(III) minerals is responsible for the release of As and the resulting groundwater contamination in many sites worldwide. So far, in most studies mainly abiogenic iron minera...
Article
Iron minerals are the most important arsenic host in As-contaminated deltaic sediments. Arsenic release from Fe minerals to groundwater exposes millions of people worldwide to a severe health threat. To understand the coupling of Fe mineralogy with As (im)mobilization dynamics, we analyzed the geochemistry and mineralogy of a 46 m long sediment cor...
Article
Full-text available
Arsenic groundwater contamination threatens the health of millions of people worldwide, particularly in South and Southeast Asia. In most cases, the release of arsenic from sediment was caused by microbial reductive dissolution of arsenic-bearing iron(III) minerals with organic carbon being used as microbial electron donor. Although in many arsenic...
Article
Full-text available
The fate of arsenic (As) in groundwater is determined by multiple interrelated microbial and abiotic processes that contribute to As (im)mobilization. Most studies to date have investigated individual processes related to As (im)mobilization rather than the complex networks present in situ. In this study, we used RNA-based microbial community analy...
Article
Full-text available
Natural organic matter (NOM) can contribute to arsenic (As) mobilization as an electron donor for microbially-mediated reductive dissolution of As-bearing Fe(III) (oxyhydr)oxides. However, to investigate this process, instead of using NOM, most laboratory studies used simple fatty acids or sugars, often at relatively high concentrations. To investi...
Article
Full-text available
Geogenic arsenic (As) contamination of groundwater poses a major threat to global health, particularly in Asia. To mitigate this exposure, groundwater is increasingly extracted from low-As Pleistocene aquifers. This, however, disturbs groundwater flow and potentially draws high-As groundwater into low-As aquifers. Here we report a detailed characte...
Presentation
Full-text available
Elevated concentrations of As in groundwater leading to a serious health risk for millions of people have been reported at many places all over the world. Most existing investigations are limited to a uni-disciplinary research approach, thereby neglecting the interactions between hydrochemistry, geochemistry, mineralogy, microbiology and groundwate...
Article
A collection of 45 isolates was created based on bacteria isolated from maize, broad bean, wheat, rye and wild plants such as horsetail and burdock. The aim of the current study was to isolate the bacteria, and then identify and assess the degree of genomic diversity. The molecular identification of microsymbionts isolated from the endosphere (root...

Streszczenie. Intensywny sposób gospodarowania bez wątpienia przyczynił się do zwięk-szenia efektywności oraz wydajności produkcji roślinnej i zwierzęcej. Wydajność ta wzro-sła dzięki szeroko stosowanym nawozom mineralnym, środkom ochrony roślin, a także mechanizacji rolnictwa. Ważnym aspektem intensywnego sposobu gospodarowania jest wprowadzanie n...

Consumers' awareness and concerns regarding health and environmental issues associated with intensive and highly industrialised agriculture is the main cause of the constantly growing interest in organic farming. Most consumers believe that organically grown vegetables are healthier, more nutritious and of better quality. In the current study, samp...

Most rhizobial inoculants that stimulate legume yield are applied with carriers that enhance root contact. The physicochemical properties of biochar are suitable for microbial growth, and it could be an alternative to peat, which comes from decreasing reserves but is the commonest solid inoculant carrier. The aim of the current research was to eval...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Recently biochar gained importance as a way to deal with global climate change, by sequestering C into soils, but also as a soil amendment and bioremediation tool. Many studies have demonstrated the positive influence of biochar on soil quality and subsequently, plant growth, although the results are not consistent and climate seems to be the main...
Article
Peat moss has been a standard carrier of inoculum for experimentation and in agriculture. Peat moss is, however, a non-renewable resource. Alternatively, biochar could serve as an inoculum carrier. Here, we tested the effect of biochar-based seed coatings as a carrier for the phosphorous-solubilizing Pseudomonas libanensis inoculum, on corn growth...

The effective endophytic bacteria: identification, genomic diversity and activity to promote plant growth
Project
This is a part of AdvectAs interdisciplinary project that gathers scientists from different research fields (geochemistry, mineralogy, microbiology, hydrochemistry, environmental physics and modelling) in order to understand and predict the large-scale and long-term mobility of As in groundwater. It is believed that bacterial transformation of As(V) and/or Fe(III) in sediments are the most important mechanisms responsible for As mobilization in sub-oxic alluvial groundwater. On the other hand, Fe(II)-oxidizing bacteria might contribute to the immobilization of As by forming Fe(III) minerals and co-precipitating As. Hence, the first goals of this project are to quantify, isolate and identify Fe(III)-reducing and Fe(II)-oxidizing microorganisms that are potentially involved in As dynamics.

Cannabis sativa L. is a plant of the great potential due to its medicinal properties, which are mainly attributed to its rich metabolic profile, but also because it is an excellent source of natural fibers. The main goal of the research is to increase the current knowledge about this economically important crop by providing complex microbiological analysis as well as to better understand interactions between this plant and its microbiome. The aim is to evaluate how the cannabis plant affects and shapes microbial biodiversity and to find antimicrobial properties that could be potentially used in agriculture.
