What is micro-contrast?

I see this term used a lot but without any explanation. Can anyone point me to images with examples, or a set of Lightroom controls that leads to more/less micro-contrast?

Can any component add/detract to micro-contrast, or is it only electronic/non-linear ones? I.e. does it make sense to talk about the micro-contrast of a lense?

regards
