A review of the role of oligotrophic micro-organisms in biodeterioration

, : A review of the role of oligotrophic micro-organisms in biodeterioration. International Biodeterioration and Biodegradation 31(1): 1-13

The role played by oligotrophs in biocontamination and biodeterioration is reviewed. Oligotrophic microorganisms including many bacteria and fungi are able to grow in low concn or the apparent absence of nutrients by scavenging from the atmosphere or substratum on which they grow. As a result oligotrophs often contaminate seemingly nutrient-free liquid and surfaces such as metals and glass.

It has been proposed that recent cultural inventions such as symbolic arithmetic recycle evolutionary older neural mechanisms. A central assumption of this hypothesis is that the degree to which a preexisting mechanism is recycled depends on the d...
