    The high aqueous solubility of monoaromatic and some diaromatic oil components may hinder classical growth-based MPN enumeration of bacterial mono- and di-aromatics degraders because these aromatics are toxic in high concentrations. We developed a microplate MPN method for the enumeration of...
