Diversity of moderately halophilic bacteria associated with the soil of the black mangrove, Avicennia germinans
Mangroves are complex ecosystems that contribute the coast environment by maintaining terrestrial and marine food chains, among others. Black mangrove, Avicennia germinans, on which this study is centered, predominates ...
Potential bioremediation role of manglicolous fungi associated with the mangrove tree, Rhizophora mangle, in Puerto Rico
Mangroves are tropical ecosystems that are constantly exposed to unknown amounts of different pollutants from motorboats such as gasoline or diesel. They harbor a group of fungi called “manglicolous fungi”, able to synthesize ...
A survey of halophilic aerobic prokaryotes associated to the leaf surface of Avicennia germinans at the Solar Salterns of Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico
Mangroves represent the major component of coastal marine-lagoon ecosystems in the tropics. In the Caribbean, Avicennia germinans (black mangrove) is one of the dominant plant species within this ecosystem. In Puerto ...
