Soil texture and fertility in arid desert regions are characterized by loose structure, rich sand particles, weak biological effects, and low organic matter and nutrient levels (Verheye, Factors affecting distribution of coliforms bacteria in semi-arid groundwater sources- Tanzania.

The Algerian Sahara is characterized by a heterogeneity of edaphic conditions and climatic dissimilarities; however, information on biological indicators of arid soils is weakly documented in this area.

The researchers who have studied the biological activities of the soils of the arid regions have underlined their low organic matter content, particularly their very low rates of organic.

Biosurfactants are a unique class of compounds that have been shown to have a variety of potential applications in the remediation of organic- and metal-contaminated sites, in the enhanced transport of bacteria, in enhanced oil recovery, as cosmetic additives, and in biological control.

However, little is known about the distribution of biosurfactant-producing bacteria in the environment. This banner text can have markup. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation.

The maximum diameter of pores most frequently colonized by bacteria is estimated to range from to 9μm for fine- and coarse-textured soils, respectively.

Few bacteria have been observed to reside in pores soil pore volume, depending on soil texture and the pore size distribution. Trace gases emitted either through the activity of microbial communities or from abiotic reactions in the soil influence atmospheric chemistry.

In laboratory column experiments using several soil types, Oswald et al. [][1]) showed that soils from arid regions and farmlands can produce substantial quantities of nitric oxide (NO) and nitrous acid (HONO). Ammonia-oxidizing bacteria are. An illustration of an open book. Books.

Chapter 11 (Page no: ) Developing and commercializing new pasture legumes for clay soils in the semi-arid rangelands of northern Australia: the new Desmanthus cultivars JCU and the Progardes story.

Vast areas of semi-arid clay soil rangeland regions of northern Australia, such as the Mitchell Grass Downs Bioregion, have (until recently) no commercially available or adapted sown pasture. The effects of veterinary antibiotics range from acute toxicity to Daphnia magna (Halling-Sørensen, ), development of resistant genes (Chee-Sanford et al.,Gullberg et al., ), inhibition of soil bacteria growth, and changes in the composition of the soil microbial population.

Veterinary antibiotics can thus also reduce the soil. Abstract. The climate of arid zones is often characterized as hot and dry summers, subhumid monsoon, and cold dry winters. Rhizobia have potential to restore soil fertility and sand dune stabilization in arid regions due to higher tolerance to salt stress, elevated temperature, and drought.

Soils in semi-arid regions in Nigeria contain numerous operational taxonomic bacterial groups with potential thermophilic and drought genetic resources to be mined. Microbial community structure beneath the top soil appears stable and should be the target sample for the assessments of climatic change impact on microbial community structure in.

The papers assembled here cover topics such as technological advances in soil salinity mapping and monitoring, management and reclamation of salt-affected soils, use of marginal quality water for crop production, salt-tolerance mechanisms in plants, biosaline agriculture and agroforestry, microbiological interventions for marginal soils, opportunities and challenges in using marginal waters.

Five highly efficient phosphate solubilizing bacteria, viz., Pantoea sp. A3, Pantoea sp. A34, Kosakonia sp. A37, Kosakonia sp. B7 and Bacillus sp.

AH9 were isolated from termitorial soils of Sanjivani island of southern Maharashtra, India. These isolates were characterized and explored for phosphate solubilization and plant growth promotion. A field study was designed to examine the effect of desert shrubs on the dynamics of free-living amoebae in arid soil.

Soil samples from 0- to cm depths were collected at cm intervals in each of the four seasons. The vertical distributions of the four main morphological types of amoebae, grouped according to their mobility, and of small flagellate populations were measured under the. Calicotome villosa is a spontaneous Mediterranean legume that can be a good candidate as pioneer plants to limit regression of vegetation cover and loss of biodiversity in Tunisian arid soils.

In order to grow legumes in such soils, pairing rhizobia and nodule associated bacteria (NAB) might provide numerous advantages. In this work, cultivable biodiversity of rhizobial symbionts and NAB in. In arid regions, the salts stay in the root zone. When irrigation water evaporates from the soil surface, the salts stay on the soil surface in solid form, often forming a salt crust.

5) Identify the importance of desert soils. Desert soils, or Aridisols, occupy the third-largest land area on the Earth. Areas in the soil where iron is reduced often develop characteristic bluish gray or greenish gray colors known as gley (colors with value of 4 or more on the gley pages in the Munsell color book).

Ferric iron is insoluble, but ferrous iron easily enters the soil solution and may be moved or translocated to other areas of the soil. Shrubs play different key roles in arid regions. Comparisons of shrubs and their site adaptability are essential for correct selection of candidates in developing restoration theory and practice.

A survey of topography, soil properties and shrub composition was conducted in fifty-seven 5-m × 5-m plots in an arid valley of the upper Minjiang River, Southwest China.

Soil microbiology is the study of microorganisms in soil, their functions, and how they affect soil is believed that between two and four billion years ago, the first ancient bacteria and microorganisms came about on Earth's oceans.

These bacteria could fix nitrogen, in time multiplied, and as a result released oxygen into the atmosphere.

2 Soils modify the atmosphere by emitting and absorbing gases (carbon dioxide, methane, water vapor, and the like) and dust. 3 Soils provide habitat for animals that live in the soil (such as groundhogs and mice) to organisms (such as bacteria and fungi), that account for most of the living things on Earth.

This book reviews the distribution of soils across Egypt, their history, genesis, pollution and management. The conservation of Egyptian soils, soils and their connections to human activities, as well as some future soil issues are also highlighted. It is well known that soil is the main source for food, feed, fuel and fiber production.

In some semi-arid smallholder farming regions the rainfall patterns and distribution have changed and there has been an increase in the average duration of intra-seasonal dry spells (New et al. All this has resulted in perennial food shortages. Introduction.

Soil saline–alkalization is a key environmental factor that severely limits the functional roles of soil microbes in arid and semi-arid regions globally 1, has been suggested that crop management practices such as organic amendments (e.g., bio-fertilizer and rotten straw) are more effective than inorganic amendments (e.g., gypsum 3) for altering soil nutrient and.

INTRODUCTION. Climate change-driven increases in temperature and aridity threaten the productivity of arid ecosystems (1 – 10).Desert regions store 27% of soil organic carbon (SOC) reserves (3, 11, 12), and their continued degradation and loss of productivity in response to megadroughts, global warming, and anthropogenic activities have contributed to a current assessment that 24% of land.

Changes in microbial community are known in soils of tropical, sub-tropical and temperate regions. Shail and Dubey () have studied the seasonal changes in microbial community (bacteria and fungi) and species diversity in fungi in banj-oak and chir-pine forest soils of Kumaon Himalaya in .to the diversity of bacteria in two separate regions.

We also found some consistent associations between soil Hg contents and the community composition of bacteria. For example, soil total Hg content was positively related to the relative abundance of Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes in both paddy and upland soils.
