This paper presents a general review of the current knowledge regarding bacterial communication via electromagnetic fields. The possible role of ultraviolet, visible and infrared light, extremely high frequency and low frequency electromagnetic fields as well as sound waves is discussed. The probable mechanisms of remote microbial interactions are raised. Future trends in the area of microbiology are also viewed.
