Title
Airborne Bacterial Communities in Three East Asian Cities of China,South Korea, and Japan
Description
This study was supported by the Global Research Lab (grant no.K21004000001-10A0500-00710) through the National Research Foundation ofKorea (NRF) funded by the Ministry of Science, ICT (Information andCommunication Technologies) and Future Planning.
abstract
The global diversity of airborne bacteria has not yet been studied, despite its importance in human health and climate change. Here, we focused on the diversity of airborne bacteria and their correlations with meteorological/environmental conditions in China, South Korea, and Japan. Beijing ( China) had more diverse airborne bacteria, followed by Seoul ( South Korea) and Nagasaki ( Japan), and seasonal variations were observed. Beijing and Seoul had more diverse airborne bacteria during the winter, whereas Nagasaki showed greater diversity during the summer. According to principal component analysis and Bray-Curtis similarity, higher similarity was observed between Beijing and Seoul than between Seoul and Nagasaki during all seasons except summer. Among meteorological/environmental variables, temperature and humidity were highly correlated with the diversity of airborne bacteria on the measurement day, whereas wind speeds and the frequency of northwest winds were highly correlated for 2-3-day moving averages. Thus, proximity and resuspension could enhance bacterial diversity in East Asian cities.
