maritima, any treatment effects must have originated in the plant rather than an epiphyte, as only axenic plants were used.
Working with an axenic culture allowed the study of the whole process of degradation of phytoplankton released DOM, simulating the release of material by these cyanobacteria in a reservoir and its utilization by the bacterial heterotrophic community as the utilization of co-cultures of phytoplankton/bacteria can make subtle changes in the released organic matter composition (Bruckner et al., 2011).
For assays, the parasites were maintained in axenic conditions at 36.5[degrees]C for 30 days by serial subcultivation in TYI-S-33, PEHPS, or CLUPS medium.
Among the topics are a novel protocol for model calibration in biological wastewater treatment, the characterization of pure cultures isolated from sulfamethoxazole-acclimated activated sludge with respect to taxonomic identification and sulfamethoxazole biodegradation potential, the bacterial consortium and axenic cultures isolated from activated sewage sludge for biodegradation and imidazolium-based ionic liquid, and the scenario analysis of nutrient removal from municipal wastewater by microbial biofilms.
