Title: A preliminary study on the occurrence of phenol-degrading bacteria in Canagagigue Creek
Author: Qureshi, Ansar A.; Tanai, G.
Abstract: The occurrence and concentration of phenol-degrading bacteria were examined in the Canagagigue Creek near Elmira, Ontario. The results of microbiological analysis suggested the potential presence of these organisms. However, with respect to the actual degradation of phenols, data from chemical analysis of the inoculated assay medium did not support microbiological observations. The detection of fluorescent pseudomonads (a groups of aerobic bacteria which are capable of utilizing phenols and other related compounds) and high levels of heterotrophic bacteria are indicative of substantial organic enrichment in this stretch of the Canagagigue Creek.
