Abstract:
This dissertation is concerned with studying aspects of the ecology of microorganisms from a functional perspective using different microbial populations in soils. In the first study, an investigation was done on the distribution of biosurfactant producing microorganisms. In the second study, temporal changes were observed in an indigenous phenanthrene degrading community following a long-term pulse of phenanthrene.
