Microbial activity in Florida Everglades peat

Microbial activity in Florida Everglades peat

New Phytologist 73(1): 107-113

Populations of viable bacteria and fungi occurred in various strata of the Everglades peat; however, few peat samples from horizons below the surface were colonized by actively growing fungi or actinomycetes. Direct observations confirmed some features of the cultural studies. Bacteria were mostly present in small groups of two to six cells and most of the hyphae recorded appeared to belong to Actinomycetales rather than fungi. Microbial activity, was neither negligible nor extensive.
