The versatile ε-proteobacteria: key players in sulphidic habitats
An overview of the taxonomic classification for the class is presented, ecological and metabolic data in key sulphidic habitats are reviewed, and the ecological and geological potential of the ε-proteobacteriain modern and ancient systems are considered.

Model-based multi-locus estimation of decapod phylogeny and divergence times.
Bacterial diversity and ecosystem function of filamentous microbial mats from aphotic (cave) sulfidic springs dominated by chemolithoautotrophic "Epsilonproteobacteria".

This work uses an extensive phylogeny of currently known opsin sequence diversity as a foundation for examining the evolutionary distributions of key functional features within the opsin clade, and illustrates the lability of opsin protein-expression patterns, site-specific functionality and G-protein binding interactions.
Productivity-Diversity Relationships from Chemolithoautotrophically Based Sulfidic Karst Systems
The discovery of diverse communities at deep-sea hydrothermal vents and cold seeps brought to light the importance of microorganisms as significant contributors to ecosystem autotrophic processes.

This study further expands the perceptions of the diversity and geographic distribution of “Epsilonproteobacteria” in extreme environments and demonstrates their biogeochemical importance in subterranean ecosystems.
Linking phylogenetic and functional diversity to nutrient spiraling in microbial mats from Lower Kane Cave (USA)
The variability of nutrient species in a spiraling model may explain observed differences in microbial taxonomic affiliations and metabolic functions, thereby spatially linking microbial diversity to nutrient spiraling in the cave stream ecosystem.
Arsenite oxidase gene diversity among Chloroflexi and Proteobacteria from El Tatio Geyser Field, Chile.
This research expands the known distribution and diversity of arsenite oxidation in natural geothermal settings, and provides information about the evolutionary history of microbe-arsenic interactions.
