Directory entires that have specified Europe as one of the geographic regions for the project/activity and are included in the AMAP, ENVINET, SAON and SEARCH directories.

To see the full list of regions, see the regions list. To browse the catalog based on the originating country (leady party), see the list of countries.

It is well known that the atmosphere is a conveyor of microorganisms, and that bacteria can act as ice or cloud condensation nuclei, but clouds have not been considered as a site where organisms can live and reproduce. We could show that bacteria in cloud droplets collected at high altitudes are actively growing and reproducing at temperatures at or below 0°C. Since ~60% of the earth surface is covered by clouds, cloud water should be considered as a microbial habitat.
