In order to obtain evidence for the existence of psychrophilic methanogenic communities in sediments of deep lakes that are low-temperature environments (4 to 5 degrees C), slurries were first incubated at temperatures between 4 and 60 degrees C for several weeks, at which time they were amended, or not, with an additional substrate, such as cellulose, butyrate, propionate, acetate, or hydrogen, and further incubated at 6 degrees C. Initial methane production rates were highest in slurries… CONTINUE READING
