ARCHAEA (archaebacteria) constitute one of the three major evolu-tionary lineages of life on Earth1–3. Previously these prokaryotes were thought to predominate in only a few unusual and disparate niches, characterized by hypersaline, extremely hot, or strictly anoxic conditions4–7. Recently, novel (uncultivated) phylotypes of Archaea have been detected in coastal8 and subsurface9,10 marine waters, but their abundance, distribution, physiology and ecology remain largely undescribed. Here we… CONTINUE READING
