Environmental Microbiology

The study of microorganisms that live in both natural and man-made settings is known as environmental microbiology. The findings of Antony van Leewenhoeck, which were published in 1677, serve as the foundation for scientific study in this area. Air, soil, and water microbiology are all included in this field of study. The four parts of the environment are the hydrosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere. The study of microorganisms in the soil, water, and air, as well as their use in bioremediation to lessen environmental pollution through the biological breakdown of pollutants into non-toxic or less hazardous chemicals, are the focus of environmental microbiology.

The creation of oxygen, symbiotic interactions, evolution, and decomposition are just a few of the crucial functions that microorganisms play in ecosystems. Dead animal or plant materials is broken down into simpler molecules during decomposition. Only the microbes that make their way into the dead stuff can explain why this process takes place.
