Effects of triclosan on bacterial community composition and Vibrio populations in natural seawater microcosms

Pharmaceuticals and personal care products, including antimicrobials, can be found at trace levels in treated wastewater effluent. Impacts of chemical contaminants on coastal aquatic microbial community structure and pathogen abundance are unknown despite the potential for selection through antimicrobial resistance. In particular, Vibrio, a marine bacterial genus that includes several human pathogens, displays resistance to … Continue reading Effects of triclosan on bacterial community composition and Vibrio populations in natural seawater microcosms
