Abstract The low solubility of hydrocarbons forces hydrocarbon-degrading microorganisms to physically interact with oil phases. This has various implications for the physicochemical characteristics of these microbes, their modes of hydrocarbon uptake, and behavioral and physiological strategies used to establish the interaction as summarized in Table 1 .
