Wildfire Smoke Transports Microbes

Turns out wildfire smoke isn’t sterile, according to U of I fire scientist Leda Kobziar during a conversation with KQED. Kobziar used flying drones and vacuumed air onto filters to capture microbes found in smoke. Her team found more diversity of bacteria and fungi in the smoky air than in non-smoky air. And the bigger the fire, the more microbes the smoke carried. Because this is a new area of study, Kobziar says they have a lot to learn about how the transportation of microbes by smoke may affect the ecosystem and human health.
