Microbial communities of extreme environments have often been assumed to have low species richness. We analysed 18S rRNA gene signatures in a sample collected below the chemocline of the anoxic Mariager Fjord in Denmark, and from these data we computed novel parametric and standard nonparametric estimates of protistan phylotype richness. Our results indicate unexpectedly high richness in this environment: at the 99.5% phylotype definition, our most conservative estimate was 568 phylotypes… CONTINUE READING
