Eukaryotic Organisms in Extreme Acidic Environments, the Río Tinto Case

  title={Eukaryotic Organisms in Extreme Acidic Environments, the R{\'i}o Tinto Case},
  author={{\'A}ngeles Aguilera},
A major issue in microbial ecology is to identify the limits of life for growth and survival, and to understand the molecular mechanisms that define these limits. Thus, interest in the biodiversity and ecology of extreme environments has grown in recent years for several reasons. Some are basic and revolve around the idea that extreme environments are believed to reflect early Earth conditions. Others are related to the biotechnological potential of extremophiles. In this regard, the study of… CONTINUE READING
