Abstract Bioremediation exploits the genetic diversity and metabolic versatility of microorganisms for the transformation of contaminants into less-harmful end-products, which are then integrated into natural biogeochemical cycles. Understanding the ecology, physiology and evolution of degradative microorganisms is critical for the successful consideration and implementation of bioremediation. This article focuses on the common ecological and evolutionary constraints that influence bioremediation processes.
