Abstract

The bacterial strains IMB-1(T) and CC495(T), which are capable of growth on methyl chloride (CH(3)Cl, chloromethane) and methyl bromide (CH(3)Br, bromomethane), were isolated from agricultural soil in California fumigated with CH(3)Br, and woodland soil in Northern Ireland, respectively. Two pesticide-/herbicide-degrading bacteria, strains ER2 and C147, were isolated from agricultural soil in Canada. Strain ER2 degrades N-methyl carbamate insecticides, and strain C147 degrades triazine herbicides widely used in agriculture. On the basis of their morphological, physiological and genotypic characteristics, these four strains are considered to represent two novel species of the genus Aminobacter, for which the names Aminobacter ciceronei sp. nov. (type strain IMB-1(T)=ATCC 202197(T)=CIP 108660(T)=CCUG 50580(T); strains ER2 and C147) and Aminobacter lissarensis sp. nov. (type strain CC495(T)=NCIMB 13798(T)=CIP 108661(T)=CCUG 50579(T)) are proposed.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 17 February 2014.
All research outputs
#3,597,215
of 12,423,808 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology
#1,203
of 5,556 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#89,645
of 301,685 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology
#42
of 133 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,423,808 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 5,556 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 301,685 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 133 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
