- ... The last century was marked by a high demographic revolution and the fast development of urban environments. Now, more than 50% of the world’s 7.5 billion humans live in cities. This change has often induced the degradation of environmental quality in urban areas. As a consequence, management policies are now fostering the ‘return of nature’ in cities, which, in turn, is requiring a better underst ...

- ... To reduce the environmental footprint of human activities, the quality of environmental media such as water, soil and the atmosphere should be first assessed. Microorganisms are well suited for a such assessment because they respond fast to environmental changes, they have a huge taxonomic and genetic diversity, and they are actively involved in biogeochemical cycles. Here, we review microbiologic ...
