Natural resource deterioration by bacteria: Environment, agents, and mechanism

Soil microorganisms play an important role in the ecosystem by helping to release vital nutrients from primary minerals, which are needed not only for their own nutrition but also for plant nutrition. Although the significance of fungi in mineral weathering is becoming clearer, the relative importance of bacteria in this process and the molecular mechanisms involved are yet unknown. Focus on the ecological significance of bacterial weathering, particularly in soil and acidic forest environments, which rely heavily on mineral weathering for survival. Highlights from studies demonstrating molecular mechanisms and genetic variables involved in the aerobic dissolving of complex minerals. The prospective uses of genomic resources the study of bacterial weathering.
