Two main physiological groups of bacteria are known which are adapted to high saline environments, moderate and extreme halophiles. In order to clarify some aspects of the competition between these two groups in their natural habitats, continuous cultures were used to provide a changing spectrum of conditions of salt concentration, temperature, and nutrient concentration (dilution rate). The effects of these parameters on natural solar saltern populations were studied. Complex media were used… CONTINUE READING
