Resumen: "Although detergents are major environmental pollutants for soil and water, their impact in bacterial community structures has not been addressed. We compared the bacterial community structures as well as several edaphic parameters between severely detergent-contaminated soils and noncontaminated soils in the State of Yucatán, México. The results indicate that sodium concentration, salinity, and electrical conductivity were significantly higher in contaminated samples, and that this correlates with different bacterial community structures. The most important differences were that (i) samples with detergent presented a lower species richness"
