Abstract Vertical distributions of sulfate-reducing bacteria and methane-producing archaea were investigated in the profundal sediment of a freshwater lake using membrane-immobilized small subunit rRNA hybridization with group- and genus-specific oligonucleotide probes. The annual average of the relative abundance of small subunit rRNA hybridized with all probes for sulfate-reducing bacteria to total small subunit rRNA was 2.3% at 0-2 cm and increased with depth up to 22.9% at 8-14 cm where… CONTINUE READING
