Abstract Soils with known history of exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were collected from Norway, Germany and the United States and screened for the presence of PAH-degrading bacteria. Purified PAH-degrading isolates were characterized by fatty acid profile analysis (GC-FAME), substrate utilization patterns (Biolog assays), 16S rRNA sequence comparisons, and total DNA:DNA hybridizations. These studies showed that all soils contaminated with PAHs developed competent PAH-degrading bacteria that are biochemically similar and phylogenetically related. However, bioremediation strategies relying exclusively on indigenous PAH degraders should be closely evaluated for the ability to achieve site-specific clean up standards in a timely manner.
