Sampling of tundra soils for isolation of psychrophilic Pseudomonas spp. bacteria

Updated 2003-04-24

In order to isolate bacteria with a potential for cold-resistant production of enzymes, antibiotics, detergents, etc. I would like to sample a number of different tundra soils in the Abisko area. This will include soils representing a variety of organic matter, degree of humification, water-logging and soils surrounding different types of vegetation.
