Methods for Studying Microorganisms in the Environment

Abstract : The main methods for the study of microorganisms in the environment (water, soil, sediment, biofilms), the different techniques of sampling for measuring biomass, the activities, and the diversity of the microorganisms are presented. To respond to these various issues, techniques as varied as those of flow cytometry, molecular biology, biochemistry, molecular isotopic tools, or electrochemistry are implemented. These different techniques are described with their advantages and disadvantages for different types of biotopes. The question of the isolation, culture, and conservation of microorganisms from the environment are also addressed. Without being exhaustive, this chapter emphasizes the importance of using appropriate and efficient methodological tools to properly explore the still mysterious compartment of microorganisms in the environment.
