Abstract
Ammonia tolerance of AOA is usually much lower than that of the AOB, which makes the AOB rather than AOA a predominant ammonia oxidizer in agricultural soils, contributing to global N 2 O emission. Recently, some AOA species from the genus “ Ca. Nitrosocosmicus” were also found to have high ammonia tolerance.
