Appreciation of virus-biofilm ecological interactions remains poorly developed, as too is our understanding of the applied ecology of bacteriophage-biofilm interactions during phage therapy. A major issue is that biofilms tend to be easily cleared using phages in the laboratory, mostly readily if not necessarily trivially cleared using phages in the clinic, and so far as we know little impacted by phages in the environment. Here I consider both the ecology and applied ecology of phage exploitation and/or eradication of biofilms, exploring in particular a combination of the population biological, physiological, genetical, and clinical susceptibility of biofilms to phages.
