Abstract

MACIEL-SOUZA, Maria do Carmo et al. Chemical and microbiological characterization of mangrove sediments after a large oil-spill in Guanabara Bay - RJ - Brazil. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2006, vol.37, n.3, pp.262-266. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822006000300013.

Seventeen months after a 1,3 million L oil spill into Guanabara Bay, analyses of mangrove sediments showed that the three sites closest to the spill remain highly polluted (>10 µg-g-1 polyaromatic hydrocarbons). A fourth site was less polluted, from which most hydrocarbon degrading bacteria were isolated.

Keywords : mangrove; PAH; bioprospecting; bioremediation; oil spill; polyaromatic hydrocarbons.
