Analysis of the time dependency of ammonia-oxidizing bacterial community dynamics in an activated sludge bioreactor

J Biosci Bioeng. 2011 Aug;112(2):166-9. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiosc.2011.03.021. Epub 2011 May 4.


An autoregressive error term model was applied to examine the dynamic oscillation of ammonia-oxidizing bacterial (AOB) lineages found in an activated sludge bioreactor. The current abundance of AOB lineages was affected by the past abundance of AOB lineages and past environmental and operational factors as well as current influencing factors.
