Heterotrophic Protists in Hypersaline Microbial Mats and Deep Hypersaline Basin Water Columns

  title={Heterotrophic Protists in Hypersaline Microbial Mats and Deep Hypersaline Basin Water Columns},
  author={V P Edgcomb and Joan M Bernhard},
Although hypersaline environments pose challenges to life because of the low water content (water activity), many such habitats appear to support eukaryotic microbes. This contribution presents brief reviews of our current knowledge on eukaryotes of water-column haloclines and brines from Deep Hypersaline Anoxic Basins (DHABs) of the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as shallow-water hypersaline microbial mats in solar salterns of Guerrero Negro, Mexico and benthic microbialite communities from… CONTINUE READING
