Significant relationships between chemical pollutants and the microbiota of urban deposits are highlighted in Science and the Total Environment.
Laure WIEST from Traces group at ISA is co-author of this first study presenting full comparisons between specific high priority pollutants monitorings, and microbiological DNA patterns.
