Recent studies of ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) suggested their significant contributions to global nitrogen cycling, and phylogenetic analysis categorized AOA into a novel archaeal phylum, the Thaumarchaeota. AOA are ubiquitous in terrestrial ecosystems, have unique mechanisms for nitrification, better adaptation to low-pH pressures, and strikingly lower ammonia requirements compared with ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB). Previous perceptions that microbial ammonia oxidation in acidic soils… CONTINUE READING
