Short summary
The bacteria carried by winds over the island of Sardinia in the Mediterranean Sea were collected, and their identities were investigated by reading DNA sequences. The sampling period was the factor that most determined the airborne species composition as its role was stronger than that of dust-carrying storms and of the geographical position of the sampling station. The bacteria found when the sampling was performed in September had more species variety than those collected in May.
