A novel thermophilic, coccoid methanogen isolated from nonthermal freshwater sediments is described. Hydrogen plus carbon dioxide and formate were substrates for methanogenesis, and methane production was stimulated by yeast extract, Casamino Acids, and tryptose. Growth also occurred autotrophically. Elevated levels of sodium chloride were not required for… CONTINUE READING
