Although the soil bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei causes the severe disease melioidosis in humans and animals its habitat in the environment is still unclear. The incidence of melioidosis is growing with indications that changing land management practices contribute to its spread. This study will increase our understanding of the consequences of environmental manipulations on B. speudomallei and contribute to the implementation of effective public health measures to decrase B. pseudomallei load and thus reduce the risk of exposure.
