Phenotypic and Genotypic Characteristics for Escherichia coli strains responsible for bacterial bloom events in Australia
Escherichia coli is widely used as an indicator of recent faecal contamination of drinking and recreational waters. However, evidence suggests that E. coli can proliferate in the environment outside a host, confounding its use as a faecal indicator. E. coli strains that produce significantly elevated counts of 10,000 - 100,000 cells/100 ml of water (bloom events) are reported from freshwater reservoirs and recreational lakes in Australia. Bloom strains are not faecal associated and may...[Show more]
