- ... Environmental contamination by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) typically occurs as mixtures of compounds. In this study, the response of indigenous soil bacterial and fungal communities to mixtures containing phenanthrene, fluoranthene and benzo(a)pyrene in various combinations was examined using molecular fingerprinting techniques and quantification of a key PAH degradative gene.
