Microbial succession during a composting process as evaluated by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analysis
The DGGE method is useful to reveal microbial succession during a composting process and bacterial populations were more complex than in previous phases and the phylogenetic positions of those populations were relatively distant from strains so far in the DNA database.
Distribution of putative denitrifying methane oxidizing bacteria in sediment of a freshwater lake, Lake Biwa.

The results show that completely oxidizing, alkylbenzene-utilizing sulfate-reducing bacteria rather than Desulfovibrio species have to be considered in attempts to understand the microbiology of sulfide production in oil wells, tanks, and pipelines when no electron donors other than the indigenous oil constituents are available.

Based on an estimation of trophic level, it was suggested that primary nitrogen sources of the red snow were supplied from fecal pellet of seabirds including a marine top predator of Antarctica.
Sulfuritalea hydrogenivorans gen. nov., sp. nov., a facultative autotroph isolated from a freshwater lake.
On the basis of its phylogenetic and phenotypic properties, strain sk43H(T) represents a novel species of a new genus, for which the name Sulfuritalea hydrogenivorans gen. nov., sp.
Phylogenetic characterization of microbial mats and streamers from a Japanese alkaline hot spring with a thermal gradient.
After the addition of hydrogen into in vitro gray streamers with in situ spring water, sulfide production markedly occurred in the presence of ambient sulfate at 66 degrees C, suggesting that in situ sulfide is partly produced by Thermodesulfobacteria-like sulfate-reducing bacteria in the streamers.
Sulfur-metabolizing bacterial populations in microbial mats of the Nakabusa hot spring, Japan.
Molecular Characterization of Community Structures and Sulfur Metabolism within Microbial Streamers in Japanese Hot Springs
Community structures of submerged microbial slime streamers in sulfide-containing hot springs at Nakabusa and Yumata, Japan, were investigated by molecular analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene, suggesting that there is in situ sulfide production by as-yet-uncultivated Thermodesulfobacteria-like microbes.
18S rDNA Phylogeny of Lamproderma and Allied Genera (Stemonitales, Myxomycetes, Amoebozoa)

It is found that the order Stemonitales and Lamproderma were both ancestral to Physarales and that LamproDerma constitutes several clades intermingled with species of Diacheopsis, Colloderma and Elaeomyxa, suggesting that these genera may have evolved from LamproDERma by multiple losses of fruiting body stalks and that many taxonomic revisions are needed.
