  author={Shu-Ying Liu and Fred A. Rainey and Hugh W. Morgan and Frank Mayer and ’ Juergenwiegel},
Six moderately acidophilic, thermophilic bacterial strains with similar properties were isolated from geothermally heated water and sediment samples collected in New Zealand. These Gram stain-negative but Gram type-positive, rod-shaped bacteria formed oval terminal endospores. The cells were peritrichously flagellated and exhibited tumbling motility. At 60°C the pH range for growth was 3.8 to 6.8, and the optimum pH was 5.2 when the organisms were grown with xylose. At pH 5.2 the temperature…

Isolation and characterization of a moderately thermophilic anaerobic alkaliphile, Clostridium paradoxum sp. nov.

Alkaliphilic, moderately thermophilic anaerobic bacteria able to grow above pH 10.5 and 55°C were isolated from various sewage plants in the United States and placed in a new species, Clostridium paradoxum, referring to the unusual retention of motility by sporulated cells.

Thermoanaerobium lactoethylicum spec. nov. a new anaerobic bacterium from a hot spring of Kamchatka

A new anaerobic thermophilic Gram-positive, nonsporeforming bacterium strain ZE-1 was isolated from a hot spring of Kamchatka (USSR) and the name proposed is Thermoanaerobium lactoethylicum spec.

Clostridium thermosulfurogenes sp. nov., a new thermophile that produces elemental sulphur from thiosulphate

A new Clostridium species is described that was isolated from a thermal, volcanic, algal-bacterial community via selective enrichment procedures with pectin as energy source and revealed a double-layered wall without the presence of an outer membranous layer.

Isolation from soil and properties of the extreme thermophile Clostridium thermohydrosulfuricum

Thirteen strains of a strict anaerobic, extreme thermophilic bacterium were isolated from soil samples of moderate temperature, from a sewage plant in Georgia, and from hot springs in Utah and

Bacillus tusciae, a new species of thermoacidophilic, facultatively chemolithoautotrophic hydrogen oxidizing sporeformer from a geothermal area

Based on its morphological and biochemical features, the organism belongs to the genus Bacillus, but differs from all the previously described species, and is proposed as constituting a new species, Bacillus tusciae.

Acetogenium kivui, a new thermophilic hydrogen-oxidizing acetogenic bacterium

A Gram negative, chemolithotrophic, thermophilic anaerobe (LKT-1) that oxidizes hydrogen and reduces carbon dioxide to acetic acid is isolated from Lake Kivu, and a new genus Acetogenium is proposed, and the species is Acetogensium kivui.

Clostridium thermoautotrophicum species novum, a thermophile producing acetate from molecular hydrogen and carbon dioxide

Fourteen strains of a thermophilic, rod-shaped, peritrichously flagellatedClostridium species were isolated from various mud and soil samples and form a new clostridial species; the nameClastridium thermoautotrophicum is proposed.

Characterization of Clostridium thermocellum JW20

Clostridium thermocellum JW20 (ATCC 31549), which was isolated from a Louisiana cotton bale, grew on cellulose, cellobiose, and xylooligomers and, after adaptation, on glucose, fructose, andxylose and was totally inhibited in the presence of more than 125 mM sodium sulfate, 300 mM sodium chloride, 250 mM potassium chloride, 200 mM calcium chloride, 125 mM lactate, or 250 mM acetate.
