The habitability of icy environments may be limited by low temperature, low nutrient concentrations, high solute concentrations and the physical ice matrix. The basal ice of ice sheets and glaciers contains sediments that may be a source of nutrients for microbial activity. Here we quantify microbial respiration and active cell populations of Antarctic glacial isolates Paenisporosarcina sp. B5 and Chryseobacterium sp. V3519-10 in laboratory ices with abundant nutrients at temperatures from -4°C… CONTINUE READING
