Verrrrry good, but maybe a bit dense: I agree with Pbwebb. The info is good, but maybe you could put a "lighter" summary in/ just after your intro so someone just mildly interested and knowledgable could get the important stuff without being bogged down in the more technical stuff (I know that would be a lot of work, and won't be at all offended if you ignore this)Njblackburn 05:09, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Italics for the microbes' names! put two apostrophes at the beginning and end of the italicized section like this Njblackburn 05:05, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

informative yes most def. this is a super complex issue and hot topic in science. work of selling your subject. I felt like I got rushed into the details prematurely. how can your wiki page appeal to a wider audience? what will award your page with more "hits." thats just my 10 cents. cheers Pbwebb 04:40, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Wow, this looks fabulous! I love the images- Great job! Heather

Nice job!!I also liked how you presented the illustrations. I read a recent paper that evaluated bioremediation of aquifers contaminated with uranium with the aid of nitrate and nitrate dependent Fe(II)-oxidizing microorganisms. It is in the journal of geomicrobiology by Senko et al., 2005. Check it out..CheersEgrgutierrez 03:31, 14 March 2008 (UTC)----

Also great use of pictures to illustrate aromatic compoundsNjppatel 18:44, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Great page, i especially liked how you gave a real life example of the exon valdez spill to illustrate the concept of bioremdiationNjppatel 18:43, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

The Microbe page that our group created is for phanerochaete chrysosporium Sdemetriou 01:24, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

would be good in intro to define in situ vs ex situ remediation. Ex situ then cover the use of bioreactors and other such systems.

looking very good. Make sure you use proper scientific nomenclature for naming organisms: genus starting with caps and species name starting with lower case.

Also I think it flows better to start with pollutants and put the organisms second. Kate Scow 01:36, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
