Abstract Organohalide-respiring bacteria (OHRB) “breath” halogenated compounds for energy conservation. This fascinating process has received increasing attention over the last two decades revealing the physiological, biochemical, genomic, and ecological features of this taxonomically diverse bacterial group. The discovery of OHRB enabled successful bioremediation at sites impacted with toxic chlorinated compounds, and has drawn researchers with diverse science and engineering backgrounds to study this process. Chapters discussing fundamental and applied aspects of OHRB demonstrate a vibrant research field that will continue to spur scientific discovery and innovate practice.
