The article reviews the few studies that have evaluated the survival of bacterial hosts and cloning vectors (e.g., phages) and the transfer of genetic information, by the processes of conjugation, transduction, and transformation, in aquatic and terrestrial environments and on plants. Mention is also made of selected in vivo studies (i.e., in human beings and other animals), as the environmental factors that affect survival and genetic transfer in vivo have similarity to those that affect survival and genetic transfer in situ (i.e., in natural environments).
