    Wageningen PhD theses

    This database contains bibliographic descriptions of all Wageningen University PhD theses from 1920 onwards. It is updated on a daily basis by WUR Library.

    Author abstracts and/or summaries are added to all descriptions. A link to the full text dissertation is added to the bibliographic description. In a few cases, no electronic version is available, mostly because of copyright issues.

    Hard copies of all theses are available for loan at WUR Library. To request them, click the link Request this publication in the full record presentation. This is a fee based service.

Micro-organismen zijn in staat om organische verbindingen om te zetten in minder schadelijke stoffen en spelen daarom een belangrijke rol bij het opruimen van milieuvervuiling. Voor beleidsmakers, landgebruikers en landeigenaren is het belangrijk dat er bij milieuverontreiniging goed toezicht wordt gehouden op de biologische afbraakprocessen en dat deze goed worden beheerst. Aangezien microbiële activiteit in het milieu wordt beïnvloed door diverse fysische, geochemische en biologische factoren, is nauwkeurige kennis van het afbraakproces hierbij noodzakelijk. In dit promotieonderzoek wordt de relatie tussen geochemische condities en de biologische afbraakcapaciteit van micro-organismen in het milieu beschreven, inclusief methoden om de activiteit en metabole functies van deze micro-organismen in het milieu te meten

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
