    Environmental Microbiology Environmental microbiology is the study of the composition and physiology of microbial communities in the environment. The environment in this case means the soil, water, air and sediments covering the planet and can also include the animals and plants that inhabit these areas.

Since the discovery in that they constitute a distinct branch of the biological world, archaea have expanded and altered the field of microbiology.

Archaea can thrive in some of the most extreme environments of the planet, from extremely alkaline or acid waters to high-temperature environments near thermal vents in the deep sea.

The totality of forms of prokaryotes (particularly bacteria) living on the human body is called the human microbiome, which varies between regions of the body and individuals, and changes over time. The totality of forms of prokaryotes (particularly bacteria) living in a certain region of the human body (e.g., mouth, throat, gut, eye, vagina.

Scientists have studied prokaryotes for centuries, but it wasn’t until that scientist Thomas Brock (–) discovered that certain bacteria can live in boiling water. This led many to wonder whether prokaryotes may also live in other extreme environments, such as at the bottom of the ocean, at high altitudes, or inside volcanoes, or even on other planets.

1 Introduction to Microbiology Welcome to the and is credited with publishing the first drawings of microorganisms. In he published a book by the name of These organisms are found in soil, water, even sometimes in the human body, but they are also found in some very extreme environments on Earth – very cold, very hot, very salty.

Prokaryotic life has dominated most of the evolutionary history of our planet, evolving to occupy virtually all available environmental niches. Extremophiles, especially those thriving under multiple extremes, represent a key area of research for multiple disciplines, spanning from the study of adaptations to harsh conditions, to the biogeochemical cycling of by: Protists are some of the most robust organisms on earth and can be found in extreme environments such as; geysers, ice lakes, and geothermal vents at the bottom of the ocean.

Book: Microbiology of extreme environments. + pp. Abstract: This book comprises contributions by various authors on thermophiles, acidophiles, alkalophiles, oligotrophs, osmophiles, halotolerant and halophilic microorganisms microorganisms Subject Category: Organism Groups. Chapters on viruses complement this highly informative book.

In a vertical journey through the microbial biosphere it covers aspects of cold environments, hot environments, extreme saline environments, and extreme pressure environments, and more.

It can be argued that extreme environments are simply those in which some organisms can grow whereas others cannot, and therefore the definition of an extreme environment is a taxonomic one. In virtually all examples of extreme environments it is found that as conditions become more and more demanding, microorganisms predominate, and certain.

There are some microbes, however, that have evolved to live in the extreme pH environments. Acidophiles (“acid lovers”), preferring an environmental pH range of 0 tomust use a variety of mechanisms to maintain their internal pH in an acceptable range and preserve the stability of their plasma membrane.

In recent decades we have come to realize that the microbial world is hugely diverse, and can be found in the most extreme environments.
