Microbial Diversity: Relevance and Relationship Between Environmental Conservation And Human Health

Abstract: This work presents bibliographic data on the role and function of microbial diversity. The increasing use of probiotics and prebiotics foods has led to the studies on their actual functions in the human body. It is known that in the environment, microorganisms are extremely important in recycling of nutrients, balance of trophic chains, vital physiological activities in the plants and animals, as well as the conservation of natural habitats. In human food, these microscopic organisms contribute from flavoring … Show more

“…Microorganisms represent the richest repertoire in chemistry and molecular diversity in nature, providing the basis for ecological processes such as biogeochemical cycles (PANIZZON et al, 2015) and are fundamental for soil quality because they can alter the physico-chemical characteristics of the environment, directly participating in the transformations of nitrogen and phosphorus (MASSENSSINI et al, 2014).…”

“…Regardless of the limited knowledge, the position of science is consistent in that the diversity of microorganisms has a direct impact on the stability of different ecosystems, from water and soil, to the human body. Over the last decades, attention has been paid to the preservation of biodiversity, including microorganisms, for example, by more sustainable soil cultivation (Panizzon et al 2015). On the other hand, there is a strong position that the soil is such a huge reservoir of diverse individuals and, consequently, an inexhaustible source of functions that the environmental changes do not cause a damage to the whole ecosystem.…”

“…Due to this heterogeneous microbiota, raw artisanal cheeses acquire richer and more intense flavors than pasteurized ones, which need to be sustained. Additionally, the defense of biodiversity stimulates the production of foods that provide benefits for the consumers as stated by PANIZZON et al (2015). In this regard it is known that an increased diversity has been linked to a favorable metabolism and immune system response, while a reduced variation in microbiota has been associated with health problems (MCINTOSH, 2014).…”
