Identification of factors which can influence the natural attenuation process with available microbial genetic capacities can support the bioremediation which has been viewed as the safest procedure to combat with anthropogenic compounds in ecosystems. With the advent of molecular techniques, assimilatory capacity of an ecosystem can be defined with changing community dynamics, and if required, the essential genetic potential can be met through bioaugmentation. At the same time, intensification of microbial processes with nutrient balancing, expressing and enhancing the degradative capacities, could reduce the time frame of restoration of the ecosystem. The new concept of ecosystems biology has added greatly to conceptualize the networking of the evolving microbiota of the niche that helps in effective application of bioremediation tools to manage pollutants as additional carbon source.
