Archaeal nitrification in the ocean
TLDR
Analysis of Atlantic waters of the upper 1,000 m, where most of the ammonium regeneration and oxidation takes place, showed that crenarchaeotal amoA copy numbers are also 1–3 orders of magnitude higher than those of bacterial amoB, suggesting a major role for Archaea in oceanic nitrification.
A microbial consortium couples anaerobic methane oxidation to denitrification
TLDR
It is shown that the direct, anaerobic oxidation of methane coupled to denitrification of nitrate is possible and that the reaction presented here may make a substantial contribution to biological methane and nitrogen cycles.
Candidatus "Scalindua brodae", sp. nov., Candidatus "Scalindua wagneri", sp. nov., two new species of anaerobic ammonium oxidizing bacteria.
TLDR
A new genus and species of anaerobic ammonium oxidizing planctomycetes, discovered in a wastewater treatment plant treating landfill leachate in Pitsea, UK, are described, making this genus the most widespread of all anammox bacteria described so far.
