    The aim of this study was to explore the effects of different concentrations of amoxicillin (AMX) on nitrogen (N) conversion and bacterial community structure during aerobic composting. The results revealed that AMX led to a lower temperature and increased pH during the thermophilic phase of composting. AMX inhibited the relative abundance (RA) of Firmicutes at the initial phase but increased the RA of Actinobacteria and Bacteroidetes compared with the control treatment. The core bacterial community linked to N conversion was determined by network analysis. AMX decreased the RA of amoA, a gene related to nitrification, and increased the RAs of nirK and nosZ, which are related to denitrification. Meanwhile, AMX inhibited the activity of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria but promoted the activity of denitrifying bacteria. Therefore, the main adverse effect of AMX on compost quality is to change the microbial community structure and affect the physical and chemical properties of composting.
