This study examined the bacterial and archaeal diversity from a worldwide range of wetlands soils and sediments using a meta-analysis approach. All available 16S rRNA gene sequences recovered from wetlands in public databases were retrieved. In November 2012, a total of 12677 bacterial and 1747 archaeal sequences were collected in GenBank. All the bacterial sequences were assigned into 6383 operational taxonomic units (OTUs 0.03), representing 31 known bacterial phyla, predominant with… 

Prokaryotic Community Profile in a Wetland Ecosystem

The study has adopted the culture independent metagenomic approach to determine the prokaryote diversity, which encompasses 16S rRNA gene library construction, library sequencing and phylogenetic analysis and revealed that majority of the bacterial community belonged to the phylum Proteobacteria.

Bacterial communities in the rhizosphere of Phragmites australis from an oil-polluted wetland

It is concluded that the rhizosphere soils of P. australis in oil polluted wetlands harbor diverse bacterial communities that could enhance the wetland performance through hydrocarbon degradation, nutrient cycling and supporting plant growth.

Metagenomic analysis of the microbial community structure in protected wetlands in the Maritza River Basin

Abstract Microbial communities drive the biogeochemical cycles in wetlands and provide a number of ecosystem services. They underpin soil function, and are easily impacted by anthropogenic pressure.

A comparison of bacterial communities from OMZ sediments in the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal reveals major differences in nitrogen turnover and carbon recycling potential

ABSTRACT The Northern Indian Ocean hosts two Oxygen Minimum Zones (OMZ), one in the Arabian Sea and the other in the Bay of Bengal. 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing was used to understand the total

Microbial diversity along a gradient in peatlands treating mining‐affected waters

Diverse microbial communities exist in Northern TPs, the functional potential of the peatland microorganisms is beneficial for contaminant removal in TPs and microorganisms are likely well‐adapted to high contaminant concentrations as well as to the Northern climate.

Diversity and composition of soil bacterial community respond to A. palmeri invasion under heterogeneous habitats

Investigation of the influence of A. palmeri invasion on soil bacterial diversity and community structure under four typical habitats showed that habitat, invasion and the interaction of them had little effect on alpha diversity, expect for habitat factor had a significant effect on Simpson indices.


The cellulolytic bacterium isolated from the moist peat samples designated as B. megaterium strain S0702 could produce three types of cellulases and showed the highest CMCase activity at 4.48 U/mL, which could possibly be used in various biotechnological applications.

An integrated view of bacterial and archaeal diversity in saline soil habitats is essential for understanding the biological and ecological processes and exploiting potential of microbial resources from such environments and can guide future studies to further examine the microbial diversity of saline soils.

Phylogenetic comparison of methanogen diversity in different wetland soils.

In terms of the Shannon-Weaver diversity index, the archaeal community diversity in Okefenokee Swamp was greater than that of the other wetlands.

Bacterial and archaeal diversity in high altitude wetlands of the Chilean Altiplano

The frequent presence of new taxa in different phylogenetic groups in the altiplanic wetlands studied here revealed the unique characteristics of Bacteria and Archaea in these fragile Andean ecosystems.

Archaeal diversity in a terrestrial acidic spring field revealed by a novel PCR primer targeting archaeal 16S rRNA genes.

The results from the PCR-based analysis using the redesigned primer suggest that more diverse, uncultured Archaea are present in acidic environments at a low temperature than previously recognized.

Endophytic bacterial diversity in roots of Phragmites australis in constructed Beijing Cuihu Wetland (China).

Within the diverse bacterial communities found in reed roots, endophytic strains might have a strong potential to enhance phytoremediation by reed wetlands, and this study demonstrates that.

Comparison of the Levels of Bacterial Diversity in Freshwater, Intertidal Wetland, and Marine Sediments by Using Millions of Illumina Tags

Millions of Illumina reads are determined for a comparison of bacterial communities in freshwater, intertidal wetland, and marine sediments along Pearl River, China, using a technically consistent approach to show that both taxon richness and evenness were the highest in freshwater sediment, medium in intert tidal sediment, and lowest in marine sediment.

Towards the definition of a core of microorganisms involved in anaerobic digestion of sludge

A comparison of anaerobic digester populations is a first step towards a future understanding of the relationship among biodiversity, operating conditions and digester efficiency.
