Population explosion, to the tune of -7.2 billion, along with excessive use of natural resources and a variety of anthropogenic activities, has resulted in large-scale contamination of the environment, especially the soil and groundwater.Contamination in the environment is an ever-increasing phenomenon, and often, regulatory systems and cleaning operations are not commensurate with waste generation. It is therefore necessary to search for effective and low-cost methods, especially following and stimulating the mechanisms of nature's cure. Bioremediation technologies resting upon the vast potential of biodiversity for the monitoring and abatement of environmental pollution have been briefly reviewed
