Article
The role of multi-heavy metal tolerant bacteria isolated from the rhizosphere of Eichhornia crassipes in the phytoremediation of Cu and Pb under laboratory conditions was investigated. The heavy metal tolerant rhizosphere bacteria were identified as Bacillus cereus, Paenibacillus alvei, Aeromonas caviae, Paenibacillus taiwanensis, and Achromobacter...

Heavy metals and antibiotics are considered as the emerging environmental pollutants causing both long-term and short-term modifications in the natural microbial communities due to their toxicity. The present study focus on the metal tolerance and antibiotic resistance pattern of bacteria isolated from the rhizosphere of water hyacinth growing in a...
Article
The present study highlights the prevalence of multidrug resistant bacteria in the rhizosphere of a floating nuisant weed, water hyacinth growing in a tropical wetland of South India. The isolated strains from the rhizosphere were subjected to 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and identified as Aeromonas taiwanensis and Paenibacillus taiwanensis. The...

The synthesis, characterization, thermal decomposition and antimicrobial studies of the perchlorate, nitrate, thiocyanate, chloride and bromide complexes of iron(III) with 2,3-(diimino-4'-antipyrinyl) butane (BDAP) have been done. The characterization of the complexes were done by elemental analysis, molar conductance in non-aqueous solvents, IR an...

Nickel (II) complexes of the Schiff base ligand 2,3-(diimino-4'-antipyrinyl)butane (BDAP) have been synthesized and the characterization were done by elemental analysis, electrical conductance in non-aqueous solvents, infrared and electronic spectra as well as thermogravimetry. An octahedral geometry around the Nickel (II) ion in all the complexes...

The development of multiple metal/antibiotic resistances among the bacterial population causes potential threat to human health. Metal contamination in natural environments could have a significant role in the maintenance and proliferation of antibiotic resistance. The present study aims to identify the violet pigmented bacterium isolated from the...

Excess doses of trace element contamination make conventional water treatment methods less effective and more expensive, where in alternative biotechnological applications open up new opportunities with their reduced cost and lesser impacts to the environment. In the present investigation, effectiveness of aquatic macrophyte Eichhornia crassipes wa...

The present work aims to characterize the bacterial diversity of the rhizosphere system of Nymphaea pubescens and the sediment system where it grows naturally. Heavy metal content in the sediment and Nymphea plant from the selected wetland system were also studied. Results of the current study showed that the concentration of copper, zinc and lead...

Under the present investigation efficiency of the aquatic macrophyte removal of selected heavy metals (Zn, Cd, and Pb) in laboratory conditions. The work also aims to associated micro flora of the rh naturally. revealed that and from 0 to 0.05ppm for zinc, cadmium and lead respectively. The order of abundance of heavy metals in the water samples ar...
