The Schimacher Oasis, an ice-free plateau in East Antarctic Dronning Maud Land, consists of over 120 freshwater lakes. These lakes are connected largely through four major surface channels. The bacterial diversity in these lake ecosystems remains largely unexplored. In this study, we compared the bacterial diversity in five freshwater lakes (L42, L46, L47, L50, and L51) interconnected by two surface channels using bacterial tag-encoded FLX amplicon pyrosequencing (bTEFAP) method. We further… CONTINUE READING
