Ambient iron concentration regulates the sulfate reducing activity in the mangrove swamps of Diwar, Goa, India
In order to test the hypothesis that the ambient iron concentrations could regulate sulfate reducing activity (SRA) in mangrove areas, 10 cm cores were examined from test and reference sites. The test site at Diwar mangrove ...
Abundance and production of particle-associated bacteria and their role in a mangrove-dominated estuary
A 1 yr study was carried out in the mangrove-dominated, tropical Mandovi estuary (Goa, India) to assess the contribution of particle-associated bacteria (PAB) to the system’s variability in terms of abundance and productivity. ...
Denitrification prevails over anammox in tropical mangrove sediments (Goa, India)
Denitrification, anammox (Anx) and di-nitrogen fixation were examined in two mangrove ecosystems- the anthropogenically influenced Divar and the relatively pristine Tuvem. Stratified sampling at 2 cm increments from 0 to ...
Bacterial contribution to mitigation of iron and manganese in mangrove sediments
The Mandovi and Chapora, (Goa, India) are two tropical estuaries lying in close geographic proximity on the west coast of India. Seasonal changes in down core variation of Fe, Mn and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) in the ...
Organic carbon and iron modulate nitrification rates in mangrove swamps of Goa, south west coast of India
Nitrification, fuelled by ammonium is the pivotal oxidative pathway to nitrogen cycling. In spite of its ecological significance, the factors regulating nitrification rates in the benthic realm remain poorly understood. ...
