Article
Full-text available
Corals are of ecological and economic importance, providing habitat for species and contributing to coastal protection, fisheries, and tourism. Their biotechnological potential is also increasingly recognized. Particularly, the production of pharmaceutically interesting compounds by corals and their microbial associates stimulated natural product-b...
Article
Full-text available
Would you believe us if we told you that, when you breathe in, you inhale thousands of microorganisms with every breath. Although this might sound scary, be assured that they are safe for your health. These airborne microorganisms, too small to see with the naked eye, consist of many different species. Who are they? Where do they come from? What do...
Article
Full-text available
Gorgonians are important habitat-providing species in the Mediterranean Sea, but their populations are declining due to microbial diseases and repeated mass mortality events caused by summer heat waves. Elevated seawater temperatures may impact the stress tolerance and disease resistance of gorgonians and lead to disturbances in their microbiota. H...
Article
Full-text available
Although Next-Generation Sequencing techniques have increased our access to the soil microbiome, each step of soil metagenomics presents inherent biases that prevent the accurate definition of the soil microbiome and its ecosystem function. In this study, we compared the effects of DNA extraction and sequencing depth on bacterial richness discovery...
Article
Full-text available
Microorganisms are ubiquitous in the atmosphere, and some airborne microbial cells were shown to be particularly resistant to atmospheric physical and chemical conditions (e.g., ultraviolet-UV-radiation, desiccation and the presence of radicals). In addition to surviving, some cul-tivable microorganisms of airborne origin were shown to be able to g...
Article
Full-text available
Aerobiology is a growing research area that covers the study of aerosols with a biological origin from the air that surrounds us to space through the different atmospheric layers. Bioaerosols have captured a growing importance in atmospheric process-related fields such as meteorology and atmospheric chemistry. The potential dissemination of pathoge...

Microorganisms are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and some airborne microbial cells were shown to be particularly resistant to atmospheric physical and chemical conditions (e.g., UV radiation, desiccation, presence of radicals). In addition to surviving, some cultivable microorganisms of airborne origin were shown to be able to grow on atmospheric ch...
Article
Full-text available
We investigated the interactions of air and snow over one entire winter accumulation period as well as the importance of chemical markers in a pristine free-tropospheric environment to explain variation in a microbiological dataset. To overcome the limitations of short term bioaerosol sampling, we sampled the atmosphere continuously onto quartzfibe...

Article
Microorganisms are ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Global investigations on the geographical and temporal distribution of airborne microbial communities are critical for identifying the sources and the factors shaping airborne communities. At mid-latitude sites, a seasonal shift in both the concentration and diversity of airborne microbial communitie...
Thesis
Up to a million microbial cells per cubic meter are found in suspension in the planetary boundary layer, the lowest part of the atmosphere. Direct influences of the planetary boundary layer on humans, crops and diverse ecosystems like soils and oceans make the full understanding of its composition, both chemical and microbiological, of utmost impor...
Article
Full-text available
Primary biological aerosols are transported over large distances, are traveling in various media such as dry air masses, clouds or fog, and eventually deposited with dry deposition, especially for larger particles, or precipitation like rain, hail or snow. To investigate relative abundance and diversity of airborne bacterial and fungal communities,...
Article
Full-text available
The atmosphere is an important route for transporting and disseminating microorganisms over short and long distances. Understanding how microorganisms are distributed in the atmosphere is critical due to their role in public health, meteorology and atmospheric chemistry. In order to determine the dominant processes that structure airborne microbial...
Article
Full-text available
The interplay between microbes and atmospheric physical and chemical conditions is an open field of research that can only be fully addressed using multidisciplinary approaches. The lack of coordinated efforts to gather data at representative temporal and spatial scales limits aerobiology to help understand large scale patterns of global microbial...
