The composition of bacterial communities in Lake Baikal in different hydrological periods and at different depths (down to 1515 m) has been analyzed using pyrosequencing of the 16S rRNA gene V3 variable region. Most of the resulting 34 562 reads of the Bacteria domain have clustered into 1693 operational taxonomic units (OTUs) classified with the phyla Proteobacteria, Actinobacteria, Chloroflexi, Bacteroidetes, Firmicutes, Acidobacteria and Cyanobacteria. It has been found that their… 

Bacterial and Archaeal Community Structure in the Surface Diatom Sediments of Deep Freshwater Lake Baikal (Eastern Siberia)

ABSTRACT Diatom sediment records of large lakes can be used to decipher the history of ancient phytoplankton. The upper layer of the sediment is an important area of remineralization of the

Bacterial Communities in Areas of Oil and Methane Seeps in Pelagic of Lake Baikal

Based on comparative analyses of 16S rRNA, pmoA, and mxaF gene fragment libraries, it is suggested that there must be a wider spectrum of functional genes facilitating methane oxidation that were not detected with the primers used.

Bacterial community composition in aquatic and sediment samples with spatiotemporal dynamics in large, shallow, eutrophic Lake Chaohu, China

Abstract Lake Chaohu is a representative lake in China that suffers from severe eutrophication and algal blooms. In this study, the composition of bacterial communities in the water and sediment from

Diversity and Cyclical Seasonal Transitions in the Bacterial Community in a Large and Deep Perialpine Lake

High-throughput sequencing was used to analyze the seasonal variations in the bacterioplankton community composition (BCC) in the euphotic layer of a large and deep lake south of the Alps (Lake Garda), opening perspectives for the definition of common and discriminating patterns characterizing the temporal and spatial distribution in the BCC.

Bacterioplankton composition in tropical high-elevation lakes of the Andean plateau

This study highlights the particular BCC of tropical high‐elevation lakes and also how little is known about the variability in physico‐chemical conditions of these ecosystems.

Seasonal Succession and Coherence Among Bacteria and Microeukaryotes in Lake Baikal.

High-throughput sequencing of 16S rRNA and 18S r RNA genes revealed a relationship between seasonal succession, coherency, and functional features of freshwater bacteria and microeukaryotes.

Bacterial communities of four adjacent fresh lakes at different trophic status.

Transitions in microbial communities along a 1600 km freshwater trophic gradient

The bacterial community composition and its environmental drivers in the rivers around eutrophic Chaohu Lake, China

The high proportion of the opportunistic pathogens indicated that the discharge of sewage without adequate treatment into the rivers around Chaohu Lake indicated that these bacteria could be more effective bioindicators for long-term sewage monitoring in eutrophic lakes.

Variation of bacterial communities along the vertical gradient in Lake Issyk Kul, Kyrgyzstan

There is a dominance of Planctomycetes and Chloroflexi in the deepest layers, which can only be seen in a few other lakes with similar characteristics as Lake Issyk Kul and raises questions about their ecological role.



Vertical stratification of microbial communities in the Red Sea revealed by 16S rDNA pyrosequencing

Investigation of microbial communities in the water column overlying the Atlantis II Deep and Discovery Deep in the Red Sea indicates that the microbial communities sampled in this study are different from those identified in water column in other parts of the world.

The Structure of Microbial Community and Degradation of Diatoms in the Deep Near-Bottom Layer of Lake Baikal

The metagenome of the bacterial community from the near-bottom water layer also contains 16S rRNA gene sequences found in previously isolated bacterial strains possessing hydrolytic enzyme activity, showing that potential degraders of diatoms occur among the vast variety of microorganisms in the near thebottom water of Lake Baikal.

Spatially differing bacterial communities in water columns of the northern Baltic Sea.

The diversity and community structure of the northern Baltic Sea bacterial communities in the water column were thoroughly studied by 454 sequencing, finding that the spring and autumn bacterial communities were one order of magnitude less diverse than those in recently studied oceanic habitats.

Taxonomic and Functional Metagenomic Profiling of the Microbial Community in the Anoxic Sediment of a Sub-saline Shallow Lake (Laguna de Carrizo, Central Spain)

Phylogenetic and biochemical analyses indicate that the inherent physical–chemical characteristics of this habitat coupled with adaptation to anthropogenic activities have resulted in a highly efficient community for the assimilation of polysulfides, sulfoxides, and organosulfonates together with nitro-, nitrile-, and cyanide-substituted compounds.

Bacterial Community Composition in Three Freshwater Reservoirs of Different Alkalinity and Trophic Status

The results evidenced that the retrieved BCC in the analysed reservoirs was strongly influenced by pH, alkalinity and organic carbon content, whereas comparatively little change was observed among layers in stratified conditions.

Vertical Profiles of Bacteria in the Tropical and Subarctic Oceans Revealed by Pyrosequencing

This study indicates that bacterial community composition in the DOC-poor deep water in both tropical and subarctic regions were rather stable, contrasting to those in the surface water layers, which could be strongly affected by the fluctuations of environmental factors.

Water mass‐specificity of bacterial communities in the North Atlantic revealed by massively parallel sequencing

The results reveal that deep‐water masses act as bio‐oceanographic islands for bacterioplankton leading to water mass‐specific bacterial communities in the deep waters of the Atlantic.

The structure of bacterial communities in the western Arctic Ocean as revealed by pyrosequencing of 16S rRNA genes.

In these Arctic waters, in spite of dramatic variation in several biogeochemical properties, bacterial community structure was remarkably stable over time and among regions, and any variation was due to the abundant phylotypes rather than rare ones.

Phylogenetic diversity of microorganisms associated with the deep-water sponge Baikalospongia intermedia

The unusual habitation conditions of deep-water sponges contribute to the taxonomic diversity of associated bacteria and have an influence on the presence of functionally important microorganisms in bacterial communities.
