Abstract This chapter attempts to show how the hydrophobicity of hydrocarbons influences their availability for toxic exposure, microbial degradation and growth, and how it can control the carrying capacity of a microbial habitat. Bioavailability is operationalized and presented as a process at the interface between biological dynamics and physicochemical constraints.
