Abusalah (2024) 306 INTRODUCTION Crude oil spills during oil production, storage, and transportation as well as due to pipeline leak- age and tank failure have made crude oil the most common organic pollutant in all environments. This pollutant is categorized as a hazardous waste due to its cytotoxic, mutagenic, and carcinogenic effects on organisms and life components. These contaminants that are present in contaminated desert soils can leach into the surrounding subsurface and ground water, posing a threat to the environment and to human health (Jamrah et al., 2007). Many hydrocarbons are insoluble in water, thus remain partitioned in the non-aqueous-phase liquid (Cubitto et al., 2004). The contamination of hydrocarbons has significant harmful impacts on plants, such as diminished seed germination and reduced plant growth. This is due to the ability of hydrocarbons to form a coating on plant roots, which in turn reduces the absorption of wa- ter and nutrients. (Kuhn et al., 1998). Hydrocarbon molecules have the ability to deeply penetrate plant tissues and harm the cell membrane, resulting in the release of cell contents and obstruction of the spaces between cells. This ultimately leads to a decrease in the transit of metabolites and the rate of respiration. (Xu and Johnson, 1995). Analyses of desert soil sam- ples revealed that the level of lead (total or bioavail- ability) was three-fold greater in crude oil-contami- nated soils than in uncontaminated soils (AL-Saleh and Obuekwe, 2005). Poor microbial proliferation and diversity are typical for desert soils with sandy texture and low organic carbon, which are also char- acterized by lower degradation rates as compared to Identification of Oil Degrading Bacteria from Oil-Contaminated Soil in the Northeastern Part of Jordan Journal of Ecological Engineering, 2024, 25(5), 306–320
