Abstract

An experimental study evaluating the effect of bioaugmentation and antibiotic (oxytetracycline) application on pesticide degradation and microbial community structure of a biomixture used in a biopurification system (BPR) was conducted. The bioaugmentation employed a carbofuran-degrading bacterial consortium. The non-bioaugmented biomixture showed excellent performance for removal of atrazine (t1/2: 9.9 days), carbendazim (t1/2: 3.0 days), carbofuran (t1/2: 2.8 days), and metalaxyl (t1/2: 2.7 days). Neither the addition of oxytetracycline nor bioaugmentation affected the efficiency of pesticide removal or microbial community (bacterial and fungal) structure, as determined by DGGE analysis. Instead, biomixture aging was mainly responsible for microbial population shifts. Even though the bioaugmentation did not enhance the biomixtures' performance, this matrix showed a high capability to sustain initial stresses related to antibiotic addition; therefore, simultaneous elimination of this particular mixture of pesticides together with oxytetracycline residues is not discouraged.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 February 2018.
All research outputs
#2,850,051
of 12,519,038 outputs
Outputs from Environmental Science & Pollution Research
#328
of 3,359 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#79,420
of 273,197 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Environmental Science & Pollution Research
#28
of 163 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,519,038 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 76th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,359 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 273,197 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 163 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
