Organisms can degrade materials or change their properties under certain ecological conditions. This frequently results in severe financial losses. In some cases, the degradation activity of organisms can be put to positive use in technological processes. The paper surveys aspects and problems of the biodegradation of materials and protective and preventive measures. Biological materials research and testing will require the cooperation of biologists, chemists, and technologists.
