Diversity of prokaryotes associated with soils around coal-fire gas vents in MaNasi county of Xinjiang, China

Abstract

Bacterial and archaeal diversity in surface soils of three coal-fire vents was investigated by T-RFLP analysis and clone libraries of 16S rRNA genes. Soil analysis showed that underground coal fires significantly influenced soil pH, moisture and NO3 − content but had little effect on other elements, organic matter and available nutrients.
