Oily waste with natural radionuclides: Stimulates or inhibits soil bacterial community?

Researchers have revealed both structural and functional changes of the microbial community resistant to and able to decompose oily wastes in soil. The experiment was dedicated to measuring carbon dioxide efflux, microbial biomass, and community structure for 120 d after application of radioactive oily wastes to the soil at the ratio 1:4. Both waste and soil samples were collected in Tatarstan, Russia.
