- ... The biological responses of acidobiontic species to extremely acidic waters, as those related with Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) processes, are relevant not only to understand the toxicological degree of the waters as well as the mechanisms responsible for the survival and adaptation of such organisms.Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of acidic pH and metals in biofilms ...
