In this paper, there was an “insufficient attribution” by the authors for four sentences of text. The passage should have been set off in quotation marks, as follows:
“Arsenic is a metalloid whose name conjures up images of murder. Nonetheless, certain prokaryotes use arsenic oxyanions for energy generation, either by oxidizing arsenite or by respiring arsenate. These microbes are phylogenetically diverse and occur in a wide range of habitats. Arsenic cycling may take place in the absence of oxygen and can contribute to organic matter oxidation.” (Oremland and Stolz 2003).
