Archaea in boreal forest tree roots and mycorrhizas archaea ancient microbes extreme environments and the origin of life 50
Archaea, the third domain of Life, were long thought to live only in extreme habitats, such as hot springs, deep sea hydrothermal vents, and brines. During the last two decades specific archaeal lineages have been found to be wide spread in many 'normal' and cold environments, and to be responsible for important parts of the elemental cycles, such as ammonia oxidation and carbon fixation. A certain group of the 'non-extreme' archaea, the group I.1c Crenarchaeota, now belonging to the Thaumarchaeota, were shown to prefer acidic boreal forest soil environments and have only rarely been found in other environments. These archaea appear to be especially associated with the roots of boreal forest trees and the ectomycorrhizal fungi that inhabit these boreal forest tree roots. These habitats were also shown to be colonised by uncultured archaea most closely affiliating with hyperhalophilic Halobacteria and with both acetoclastic and methylotrophic methanogens. The ecological role of these archaea is not yet known. However, the tree and fungal species have an impact on the archaeal communities. The striving to reveal the ecological roles of these archaea is still ongoing.

Jennifer Stearns Microbiology For Dummies archaea ancient microbes extreme environments and the origin of life 50
Microbiology is the study of life itself, down to the smallest particle Microbiology is a fascinating field that explores life down to the tiniest level. Did you know that your body contains more bacteria cells than human cells? It's true. Microbes are essential to our everyday lives, from the food we eat to the very internal systems that keep us alive. These microbes include bacteria, algae, fungi, viruses, and nematodes. Without microbes, life on Earth would not survive. It's amazing to think that all life is so dependent on these microscopic creatures, but their impact on our future is even more astonishing. Microbes are the tools that allow us to engineer hardier crops, create better medicines, and fuel our technology in sustainable ways. Microbes may just help us save the world. Microbiology For Dummies is your guide to understanding the fundamentals of this enormously-encompassing field. Whether your career plans include microbiology or another science or health specialty, you need to understand life at the cellular level before you can understand anything on the macro scale. Explore the difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells Understand the basics of cell function and metabolism Discover the differences between pathogenic and symbiotic relationships Study the mechanisms that keep different organisms active and alive You need to know how cells work, how they get nutrients, and how they die. You need to know the effects different microbes have on different systems, and how certain microbes are integral to ecosystem health. Microbes are literally the foundation of all life, and they are everywhere. Microbiology For Dummies will help you understand them, appreciate them, and use them.

Halobacteria in Cape Comorin coast and metal remediation archaea ancient microbes extreme environments and the origin of life 50
Microbiological examination of extreme environments has revealed many new prokaryotes. Extreme environment is uninhabitable by most of the organisms where extremes of heat or cold, pH, salinity, pressure, and even radiation occurs. Extreme environments are inhabited by diverse populations of microorganisms, the extremophiles. Several classes of extremophiles are recognized in microbiology. Halophiles are organisms that require high NaCl concentrations for their growth and metabolism. Extremophiles are of interest to both basic and applied biology. The book on “Halobacteria in Cape Comorin and metal remediation” is my research work done through laboratory experiments. This book introduces the diversity of halophilic archaebacterial species, especially members of halobacteriaceae in the Cape Comorin coast and associated salt pans. The biodiversity of both halobacterial microbes and total heterotrophic organisms were enumerated and factors affecting their growth were determined. Further, metal toxicity studies and kinetics reveals their useful role in metal bioremediation.
