Prokaryotic Communities in Pit Mud from Different-Aged Cellars Used for the Production of Chinese Strong-Flavored Liquor
Investigation of pit-mud samples with different cellar ages using the pyrosequencing technique suggested that the long-term brewing operation shapes unique prokaryotic community structure and diversity as well as pit- mud chemistry, which provides scientific evidence to support the practical experience that old fermentation cellars produce high-quality liquor.

Rate-specific responses of prokaryotic diversity and structure to nitrogen deposition in the Leymus chinensis steppe
The hypothesis that the responses of prokaryota to N were dependent on deposition rates, and N-driven and pH-driven processes were the important mechanisms to control the shift of the proKaryotic community is supported. Expand
Metagenomic Insights into the Fibrolytic Microbiome in Yak Rumen
Findings suggest that the SucC/SucD-involving mechanism, instead of one based on cellulosomes or the free-enzyme system, serves a major role in lignocellulose degradation in yak rumen. Expand
The core populations and co-occurrence patterns of prokaryotic communities in household biogas digesters
Prokaryotic communities identified in the household biogas digesters varied significantly and were affected by environmental factors, such as NH4+-N, pH, and COD. Expand
Responses of Bacterial Communities to Simulated Climate Changes in Alpine Meadow Soil of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
Overall, climate warming or cooling shifted the soil bacterial community structure mainly through species sorting, and such a shift might correlate to important biogeochemical processes such as greenhouse gas emissions. Expand
Successional Trajectories of Rhizosphere Bacterial Communities over Consecutive Seasons
The response of soil bacteria to roots of the common annual grass Avena fatua over two growing seasons is analyzed using high-throughput sequencing of 16S rRNA genes to suggest adaptation of the indigenous bacterial community to this common grass over the many decades of its presence. Expand
Functional Potential of Soil Microbial Communities in the Maize Rhizosphere
This research demonstrates that the maize rhizosphere is a hotspot of genes, mostly originating from dominant soil microbial groups such as Proteobacteria, providing functional capacity for the transformation of labile and recalcitrant organic C, N, P and S compounds. Expand
Substrate Type and Free Ammonia Determine Bacterial Community Structure in Full-Scale Mesophilic Anaerobic Digesters Treating Cattle or Swine Manure
Clustering and correlation analysis suggested that substrate type and free ammonia play key roles in determining the bacterial community structure in full-scale manure anaerobic digesters, and core bacterial communities were identified. Expand
Pika Gut May Select for Rare but Diverse Environmental Bacteria
It is suggested that the pika gut may mainly select for low-abundance but diverse environmental bacteria in a host species-specific manner. Expand
Scale-dependent key drivers controlling methane oxidation potential in Chinese grassland soils
Abstract Methane (CH 4 ) oxidation plays a critical role in mitigating global warming. However, the key environmental drivers shaping CH 4 oxidation rate at regional and sub-regional scales inExpand
