Occurrence, Ubiquity and Proficiency of Hydrocarbon-Degrading Microbial Assemblages in Nature

The ecological importance of diverse microbial assemblages with putative hydrocarbon-utilizing potentials in nature cannot be overemphasized, especially given large quantities of various hydrocarbon-based products that are commonly found in various environments, and coupled with the obvious limitations associated with alternative cleanup approaches (e.g., chemical and physical methods) that are often applied to remedy hydrocarbon-contaminations [1]. Generally, high quantities of hydrocarbon pollutants constantly find their way into natural environments as a result of several anthropogenic influences, including but not limited to, accidental spills of petroleumbased fuels, constant leakage during underground storage as well as frequent use and disposal of synthetic petroleum-based products [2-4].
