Source: Sources of airborne microorganisms in the built environment | Microbiome | Full Text

Really nice new review paper by Aaron Prissin and Linsey Marr.

It covers research on sources of airborne microbes including

  • Humans
  • Pets
  • Plants
  • Plumbing
  • HVACs
  • Water damage
  • Dust
  • Outdoor air

Really thorough with tons of references and discussion of the strength of the information about possible sources. A true must read.
