Accumulation of enteric bacteriophage in fresh water sediments
Journal of Water and Health
Our study aimed to assess the accumulation of bacteriophages in sandy and clayey fresh water sediments. All of the 24 natural fresh water sediments were positive for somatic and F-specific phages, though their concentrations in the overlying water were undetectable in 1 and 11 samples, respectively, out of 24, corresponding to 4 and 46% for somatic and F-specific phages, respectively. Based on the sediment-to-water ratios, F-specific phages accumulate over 100 times more than the somaticdoi:10.2166/wh.2009.098 pmid:19491489 fatcat:oyicokz7czcvjab5vi75uxt62e
