The list of known exoplanets is rapidly growing (almost 5000 at the moment), but we know only an handful of rocky planets in their circumstellar habitable zone. We propose a revision of the criteria for defining the habitable zone, based on the updated knowledge of the role and diffusion of biometals, and present updated results on the statistics of Earth-like planets in the Galaxy.
