Thirty thermophilic strains isolated from heavy metal-rich hydrothermal vent sites at Lau Basin were tested for their susceptibility to cadmium, zinc, cobalt, and nickel. The 14 aerobic spore formers belonging to the genus Bacillus, 6 anaerobic fermenters from the order Thermotogales, and 10 anaerobic sulfur reducers from the order Thermococcales could be clearly distinguished according to their metal susceptibilities. The Thermococcales were found to exhibit the highest resistance to cadmium… CONTINUE READING
