Thermal habitats harbor specialized communities of thermophilic microorganisms, primarily prokaryotes. This review considers modern systematics of prokaryotes and the place of thermophilic archaea and bacteria in it. Among the existing hierarchical classifications of prokaryotes, the bulk of attention is given to the one accepted in the current second edition of “Bergey’s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology”, which is primarily based on 16S rRNA phylogeny and phenotypic properties of the… CONTINUE READING
