  title={Investigating the Microbial Ecology of Yellowstone Lake},
  author={Carl M. Schroeder and James C. Bruckner and Andrew Weir and Charles C. Remsen and C Marissa Aguilar and Russell L. Cuhel},
Yellowstone National Park is well known for its geothermal features. Among microbiologists it is equally well known for its unique microbial ecology and extreme habitats associated with terrestrial hot springs, geysers, and fumaroles. Yellowstone Lake has also been shown to contain geothermal activity, and the presence of hydrothermal vents with water temperatures up to 120 ̊C have been reported. The vents emit a number of compounds which are important to microorganisms as nutrients for growth… CONTINUE READING
