Microorganisms occur nearly everywhere in nature and occupy an important place in human view of life. They exhibit an impressive diversity in their metabolic activities and interactions with other microbes, plants and animals. However, relatively little is known about the diversity of the microorganisms that constitute natural as well as artificial ecosystems and are potentially useful for biotechnology applications. Our knowledge of the microbial diversity has been severely limited by relying… 
Advancing the case for microbial conservation
TLDR
The reasons for including microorganisms in conservation agenda are reviewed, some of the complications in this endeavour are discussed, and practical examples of such priorities are provided.
Isolation and Characterization of Microbes with Biofertilizer Potential
TLDR
The test isolate, S1(C) was selected on the basis of their luxuriant growth on NA which suggests its potential as biofertilizer in field conditions where the organism has to survive under wide range of natural temperature fluctuations.
Assessment of Microbial Diversity in Saudi Springs by Culture-Dependent and Culture-Independent Methods
TLDR
The microbial diversity in two hot springs of the Aljouf region in Saudi Arabia, including Qasr Kaff and Ain Hawas, was surveyed by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) and clone library construction and molecular-based techniques, and more genera were obtained.
Genetic Diversity among Thermophilic Bacteria Isolated from Geothermal Sites by Using Two PCR Typing Methods
TLDR
P phenotypic and genotypic diversity were applied for the first time to differentiate thermophilic bacteria of such geothermal sites in Sinai, Egypt.
Diversity of Aerobic Bacilli Analysis Using Molecular and Culture-Based Approaches in Debagh Hot Spring
Abstract This study reports the first attempt to describe aerobic bacilli communities in Debagh hot spring, from which 41 aerobic, thermophile, and halotolerant bacilli were isolated and selected
Microbial diversity of soil from two hot springs in Uttaranchal Himalaya.
Soil samples collected from two hot springs, Soldhar and Ringigad, both located in the Garhwal region of Uttaranchal Himalaya were analysed for their physical, chemical and microbial components. The
MICROBIAL MONITORING OF SOIL AS ADDITIONAL TOOLS FOR CONSERVATION BIOLOGY
The designation the primeval beech forests of the Carpathians as strictly protected areas is a continuing conflicting issue in Ukraine. As they represent an outstanding example of undisturbed,
