Bacteroidales: Revolutionising microbial source tracking
Managers of recreational waterways are increasingly concerned with health risks associated with human faecal contamination. Currently Escherichia coli and Enterococci sp. are the standard indicators used to assess whether waters are safe for recreational activities. However, they are general indicators of faecal pollution from warm blooded animals and do not specifically indicate the presence of human faecal contamination. There is also growing evidence that certain strains of both E. coli an Enterococci sp. are able to propagate in external environments, reducing confidence that observed levels are truly representative of faecal contamination.
