Thermotoga maritima sp. nov. represents a new genus of unique extremely thermophilic eubacteria growing up to 90°C
A novel type of bacterium has been isolated from various geothermally heated locales on the sea floor with a unique sheath-like structure and monotrichous flagellation that clearly belong to the eubacteria, although no close relationship to any known group could be detected.
Aquifex pyrophilus gen. nov. sp. nov., Represents a Novel Group of Marine Hyperthermophilic Hydrogen-Oxidizing Bacteria
Redox-mediated decolorization of synthetic dyes by fungal laccases
The data suggest that laccase/mediator systems are effective biocatalysts for the treatment of effluents from textile, dye or printing industries.
Pyrodictium gen. nov., a New Genus of Submarine Disc-Shaped Sulphur Reducing Archaebacteria Growing Optimally at 105°C.
A novel ether core lipid with H-shaped C80-isoprenoid hydrocarbon chain from the hyperthermophilic methanogen Methanothermus fervidus.
Methanopyrus kandleri, gen. and sp. nov. represents a novel group of hyperthermophilic methanogens, growing at 110°C
A novel group of hyperthermophilic rod-shaped motile methanogens was isolated from a hydrothermally heated deep sea sediment and from a shallow marine hydrothermal system, and a new genus is named Methanopyrus (the “methane fire”), which is not related to any of the three methanogenic lineages.
Thermoadaptation of methanogenic bacteria by intracellular ion concentration
It appears that, for the methanogens, changes in the intracellular ion concentration are the basis of thermoadaptation.

This work has shown the occurrence of cellulolytic bacteria in the termite Zootermopsis angusticollis, which is a good example of a Gram-positive bacterium that can be passed off to Gram-negative bacteria through contact chemoreception.

A novel spirochete strain, SPN1, was isolated from the hindgut contents of the termite Neotermes castaneus and represents a novel species, which was named Spirochaeta coccoides, which shows a coccoid morphology and is immotile.
