Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons(PAHs) are common contaminants in a municipal solid waste(MSW) composting site.Knowledge of changes in microbial structure is useful to identify particular PAH degraders.However,the microbial community in the MSW composting soil and its change associated with prolonged exposure to PAHs and subsequent biodegradation remain largely unknown.In this study,anthracene was selected as a model compound.The bacterial community structure was investigated using terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism(TRFLP) and 16S rRNA gene clone library analysis.The two bimolecular tools revealed a large shift of bacterial community structure after anthracene amendment and subsequent biodegradation.Genera Methylophilus,Mesorhizobium,and Terrimonas had potential links to anthracene biodegradation,suggesting a consortium playing an active role.
