Molecular Diversity of Bacteria from Three Distinct Ecosystems within Great Smoky Mountains National Park 2006 577 The number of microbial species in nature may be in the millions, but most have never been observed or detected (Hong et al. 2006). For over 100 years, studies have focused primarily on culturing species from environmental samples in order to examine...
Possible detection of pathogenic bacterial species inhabiting streams in Great Smoky Mountains National Park 2016 732 Numerous pathogenic bacterial species have been found in many freshwater systems around the world. These pathogens affect the overall water quality of these systems and may cause diseases in both aquatic and terrestrial animals which may lead to loss...
The discovery of a novel bacterial species in the genus Paenibacillus found in Great Smoky Mountains National Park 2017 1023 The All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI) is an effort to record all species within Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP). When it was first begun nearly 20 years ago, prokaryotic organisms were not included as targets of the ATBI, but the pro...
A new genus and species of Enterobacteriaceae isolated from Kephart Prong, Great Smoky Mountains National Park 2017 943 A bacterium was isolated from a water sample collected from the Kephart Prong in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This isolate did not have a conclusive match to any known bacteria in the Ribosomal Database Project (RDP); therefore, it was tested...
