We will explore terminology and concepts for characterizing and mathematically modeling human impacts on microbial systems and vice versa. Special consideration will be given to microbe-mediated cycling of organic materials (i.e., pollutants) in natural and engineered systems, including: conventional water and wastewater treatment, municipal landfills, pristine and contaminated groundwater and surface waters, etc.
