Community Structure of Archaea from Deep-Sea Sediments of the South China Sea


Using the archaeal 16S rRNA gene, we determined the community structures of archaea of subseafloor sediments (∼9–11 m below seafloor) from two geographically distant cores (MD05-2896, south, water depth 1,657 m; MD05-2902, north, water depth 3,697 m) in the South China Sea. Euryarchaeota accounted for 61.4% of total archaeal clone libraries at MD05-2896 and… (More)
