To reduce the environmental footprint of human activities, the quality of environmental media such as water, soil and the atmosphere should be first assessed. Microorganisms are well suited for a such assessment because they respond fast to environmental changes, they have a huge taxonomic and genetic diversity, and they are actively involved in biogeochemical cycles. Here, we review microbiological methods that provide sensitive and robust indicators for environmental diagnosis. Methods… Expand

Abstract Modern progress in soil biology is associated with the use of new molecular biology methods based on the isolation of total DNA from soil and its further analysis. The two main approaches toExpand
Microbial diversity and ecological networks as indicators of environmental quality
Evaluating the quality of ecosystems in terms of biological patrimony and functioning is of critical importance in the actual context of intensified human activities. Microbial diversity is commonlyExpand
Assessment of the effects of oxamyl on the bacterial community of an agricultural soil exhibiting enhanced biodegradation.
TLDR
Oxamyl induced changes in the abundance of oxamyl-degrading microorganisms and on the diversity of the soil bacterial community, emphasizing the utility of RNA-based NGS analysis when the effects of pesticides on the soil microbial community are explored. Expand
Microbiological Study in Petrol-Spiked Soil
TLDR
Cocksfoot proved effective in the phytoremediation of petrol-polluted soil, as it accelerated hydrocarbon degradation and increased the genetic diversity of bacteria and enhanced the activities of soil enzymes. Expand
Potential of high-throughput eDNA sequencing of soil fungi and bacteria for monitoring ecological restoration in ultramafic substrates: The case study of the New Caledonian biodiversity hotspot
TLDR
This study investigated fungal and bacterial community diversity, composition, and structure from ultramafic soils in New Caledonia, an archipelago in the southwest Pacific recognized as a priority for conservation and restoration, and proposed three ratios as metrics for monitoring the restoration trajectory of soil microorganisms.

Improvement of Soil Microbial Diversity through Sustainable Agricultural Practices and Its Evaluation by -Omics Approaches: A Perspective for the Environment, Food Quality and Human Safety
TLDR
The application of these high-throughput technologies to the study of soil microbial diversity, plant health and the quality of derived raw materials will help strengthen the link between soil well-being, food quality, food safety and human health. Expand
Standard methods for the assessment of structural and functional diversity of soil organisms: A review.
TLDR
The standard methods to sample, identify, determine, and assess soil organisms currently applied or proposed are evaluated, using well-accepted criteria such as ecological relevance; practicability of usage in terms of resources, time, and costs; and the level of standardization. Expand
Water Microbiota in Greenhouses With Soilless Cultures of Tomato by Metabarcoding and Culture-Dependent Approaches
TLDR
The results provide a first insight into the potential microbial diversity, which can increase ecosystem functionality, and compare the water microbiota between various storage system and following biofiltration. Expand
Application of microbial network analysis to discriminate environmental heterogeneity in Fildes Peninsula, Antarctica.
TLDR

Metabolic diversity among main microorganisms inside an arsenic-rich ecosystem revealed by meta- and proteo-genomics
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that an acid mine drainage highly contaminated with arsenic is dominated by seven bacterial strains whose genomes were reconstructed, which include two strains belonging to a novel bacterial phylum present in some similar ecosystems, and which was named ‘Candidatus Fodinabacter communificans. Expand
Soil microbial diversity: Methodological strategy, spatial overview and functional interest.
TLDR
This review describes past, present and ongoing conceptual and methodological strategies employed to better assess and understand the distribution and evolution of soil microbial diversity with the aim of increasing the capacity to translate such diversity into soil biological functioning and, more widely, into ecosystem services.

High-Throughput Metagenomic Technologies for Complex Microbial Community Analysis: Open and Closed Formats
TLDR
A critical review and synthesis of the most commonly applied “open-format" and “closed-format” detection technologies for interrogating microbial communities and discusses their characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages within the context of environmental applications. Expand
Soil metaproteomics – Comparative evaluation of protein extraction protocols
TLDR
This study demonstrates that a critical evaluation of the extraction protocol is crucial for the quality of the metaproteomics data, especially in highly complex samples like natural soils, where extraction with SDS–phenol resulted in “high” numbers of proteins. Expand
Metaproteomics: A New Approach for Studying Functional Microbial Ecology
TLDR
Analysis of metaproteome in contrasted environmental situations should allow tracking new functional genes and metabolic pathways and identifying proteins preferentially associated with specific stresses, which should contribute, in the future, to help policy makers in defining strategies for sustainable management of the authors' environment.

Meta-barcoded evaluation of the ISO standard 11063 DNA extraction procedure to characterize soil bacterial and fungal community diversity and composition
TLDR
The modified ISO procedure provides a better evaluation of bacterial and fungal communities and is limited to the modification of the mechanical lysis step of the existing ISO‐11063 standard, which is recommended for studies focusing on both the bacterial andFungal communities. Expand
Environmental metabolomics: an emerging approach to study organism responses to environmental stressors
TLDR
Using a wide variety of model organisms, metabolomic studies have detected stress from abiotic factors such as xenobiotic exposure and temperature shifts as well as biotic stressors such as herbivory and competition. Expand
Predictive model of soil molecular microbial biomass
Abstract Preservation and sustainable use of soil biological communities represent major challenges in the current agroecological context. However, to identify the agricultural practices/systems thatExpand
Metaproteomics: studying functional gene expression in microbial ecosystems.
TLDR
These studies highlight the potential of proteomics for the study of microbial consortia and the application of proteomic investigations to complex microbial assemblages such as seawater and soil still presents considerable challenges. Expand
Which metaproteome? The impact of protein extraction bias on metaproteomic analyses.
TLDR
The results demonstrated that even the most basic interpretations of this complex microbial assemblage varied with little overlap based on the protein extraction method employed, demonstrate the heavy influence of protein extraction on biofilm metaproteomics and provide caveats for the interpretation of such data sets when utilizing single protein extraction methods for the description of complex microbial assembling.
