Soda lakes constitute extreme aquatic ecosystems with remarkably high primary productivity rates, but information on the diversity and activity of methanogens in such environments is sparse. Using 16S rRNA and functional genes, we investigated the diversity of methanogens in the sediments of Lonar Lake, a unique saline and alkaline ecosystem formed by meteorite impact in the Deccan basalts. Although domain and phylum level 16S rRNA gene libraries were dominated by phylotypes related to… CONTINUE READING
