This special issue focuses on a cross-validation of methods for the detection and quantification of microbial pathogens and indicators of fecal pollution.

Editorial Preface This special issue focuses on a cross-validation of methods for the detection and quantification of microbial pathogens and indicators of fecal pollution. Microbial source identifiers like the order Bacteroidales are explicitly included among fecal indicators. The emphasis is on the practicality of molecularbased methods and how they relate to one another and traditional methods that tend to focus on fecal indicator bacteria (FIB). This area is highly topical because of the widely accepted view that current methods for the protection of
