Abstract[EN]: Microbial degradation of pbenanthrene is a common process in weathered stones from urban polluted environments. On the surfaces of building stones from the cathedral of Sevilla, Spain, there is an active community of bacteria able to grow using this polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon. The rapid bacterial growth in cultures with phenanthrene as unique carbon source suggests that microbial transformation reactions might occur in situ. The particular conditions prevailing in the stone niches promote the selection of microorganisms able to transform anthropogenic compounds that have been so far considered as recalcitrant.

Es posible que este tipo de degradación ocurra in situ.
