To understand the functioning of sponges, knowledge of the structure of their associated microbial communities is necessary. However, our perception of sponge-associated microbiomes remains mainly restricted to marine ecosystems. Here, we report on the molecular diversity and composition of bacteria in the freshwater sponge Ephydatia fluviatilis inhabiting the artificial lake Vinkeveense Plassen, Utrecht, The Netherlands. Polymerase chain reaction-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (PCR… 
Host-specific microbial communities in three sympatric North Sea sponges.
TLDR
The diversity of the microbial communities hosted by three sympatric sponges living in a semi-enclosed North Sea environment is assessed using pyrosequencing of bacterial and archaeal 16S ribosomal RNA gene fragments.
The Freshwater Sponge Ephydatia fluviatilis Harbours Diverse Pseudomonas Species (Gammaproteobacteria, Pseudomonadales) with Broad-Spectrum Antimicrobial Activity
TLDR
These findings suggest that E. fluviatilis hosts both transient and persistent Pseudomonas symbionts displaying antimicrobial activities of potential ecological and biotechnological value.
Phylogenetic diversity of microorganisms associated with the deep-water sponge Baikalospongia intermedia
TLDR
The unusual habitation conditions of deep-water sponges contribute to the taxonomic diversity of associated bacteria and have an influence on the presence of functionally important microorganisms in bacterial communities.
Comparison of bacterial communities associated with Xestospongia testudinaria, sediment and seawater in a Singaporean coral reef ecosystem

TLDR
It was showed that biotope appears to affect the richness, composition and abundance of bacterial communities in sponge communities and dominant bacterial symbionts of X. testudinaria in a Singaporean coral reef ecosystem.
Freshwater Sponge Tubella variabilis Presents Richer Microbiota Than Marine Sponge Species
TLDR
New information is presented on the composition of the microbial community found in freshwater spongees, which is diverse, abundant and distinct from some marine sponges, and the antimicrobial activity observed from the bacterial strains might play an important role in shaping microbial communities of the environment.
The gorgonian coral Eunicella labiata hosts a distinct prokaryotic consortium amenable to cultivation
TLDR
The E. labiata microbiome is diverse, distinct from seawater and enriched in (gorgonian)‐specific bacterial phylotypes, opening new avenues to study coral‐microbe interactions.
Microbiome Changes of Endemic Lake Baikal Sponges during Bleaching Syndrome Development
TLDR
Comparative analysis of the diseased and healthy sponge metagenomes showed that diseased sponges underwent various nonspecific changes in bacterial composition, and the bacterial community composition is probably influenced by sponge type and degree of disease affection.
Microbial community structure of two freshwater sponges using Illumina MiSeq sequencing revealed high microbial diversity
TLDR
This study showed that, fresh water sponges also posses highly diverse microbial community than previously thought and it is distinct from the marine sponge microbiota, and gives insight into the microbial composition of the freshwater sponge which is highly diverse and needs to be studied further to exploit their biotechnological capabilities.
The diversity and antibiotic properties of actinobacteria associated with endemic deepwater amphipods of Lake Baikal
TLDR
The characteristics of ecological niche and lifestyle of deepwater amphipods suggests that the observed associations between crustaceans and isolated actinobacteria are not random and might represent long-term symbiotic interactions.

ABSTRACT Microorganisms can account for up to 60% of the fresh weight of marine sponges. Marine sponges have been hypothesized to serve as accumulation spots of particular microbial communities, but
Discovery of the Novel Candidate Phylum “Poribacteria” in Marine Sponges
TLDR
The presence of a previously unrecognized evolutionary lineage branching deeply in the domain Bacteria that is moderately related to the Planctomycetes, Verrucomicrobia, and Chlamydia lines of decent is reported, and a new candidate phylum, named “Poribacteria” is suggested to acknowledge the affiliation of the new bacterium with sponges.
Sponge-specific clusters revisited: a comprehensive phylogeny of sponge-associated microorganisms.
TLDR
The results strongly support the existence of sponge-specific microbes and provide a suitable framework for future studies of rare and abundant sponge symbionts, both of which can now be studied using next-generation sequencing technologies.
Sponge-Associated Microorganisms: Evolution, Ecology, and Biotechnological Potential
TLDR
The ecology of sponge-microbe associations is examined, including the establishment and maintenance of these sometimes intimate partnerships, the varied nature of the interactions (ranging from mutualism to host-pathogen relationships), and the broad-scale patterns of symbiont distribution.
Biogeography of bacteria associated with the marine sponge Cymbastela concentrica.
TLDR
Interestingly, bacterial communities in seawater varied much less between tropical and temperate locations than did those in C. concentrica, supporting the concept of widespread dispersal among these free-living microbes.

TLDR
Bacterial diversity that is unparalleled in an invertebrate host is shown, with more than 250 000 sponge-derived sequence tags being assigned to 23 bacterial phyla and revealing up to 2996 operational taxonomic units per sponge species.
