Canonical ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA), ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and complete-nitrifying bacteria (comammox) exist in a variety of ecosystems. However, little is known about AOA, AOB and comammox or their contributions to nitrification in the soils of heavily degraded and acidic mine regions. In the present study, the activity, richness, diversity and distribution patterns of AOA, AOB and comammox in the Siding mine area were investigated. Read More
