E arth’s microbiota is remarkably pervasive, thriving at extremely high temperature, low and high pH, high salinity, and low water availability. One lineage of microbial life in particular, the Archaea, is especially adept at exploiting environmental extremes. Despite their success in these challenging habitats, the Archaea may now also be viewed as a cosmopolitan lot. These microbes exist in a wide variety of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine habitats, sometimes in very high abundance. The… CONTINUE READING
