Microbial diversity of eolian dust sources from saline lake sediments and biological soil crusts in arid Southern Australia

Abed, Raeid M M; Ramette, Alban; Hubner, Vera; De Deckker, Patrick; De Beer, Dirk


While microbial communities of aerosols have been examined, little is known about their sources. Nutrient composition and microbial communities of potential dust sources, saline lake sediments (SLS) and adjacent biological soil crusts (BSC), from Southern Australia were determined and compared with a previously analyzed dust sample. Multivariate analyses of fingerprinting profiles indicated that the bacterial communities of SLS and BSC were different, and these differences were mainly explained...[Show more]
