Psychrophilic and psychrotolerant microbial extremophiles in polar environments / Richard B. Hoover, Elena V. Pikuta.

Title: Psychrophilic and psychrotolerant microbial extremophiles in polar environments / Richard B. Hoover, Elena V. Pikuta.
Author(s): Hoover, Richard B.
Pikuta, Elena V.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: London: Taylor & Francis
In: Polar microbiology : the ecology, biodiversity and bioremediation potential of microorganisms in extremely cold environments. (2009.),
Abstract: Reviews recent information about psychrophilic and psychrotolerant microorganisms isolated from different cold environments. Provides preliminary data on isolation, morphology and physiology of novel anaerobic microbial extremophiles from polar environments (and psychrotolerant strains isolated from penguin guano) in logic scheme for biogeochemical cycling of organic matter divided into two major groups of producers and decomposers. Producers include diatoms; snow algae; prokaryotic photosynthetic microorganisms; bioremediation by diatoms and cyanobacteria; psychrophilic and psychrotolerant anaerobic chemolithotrophic autotrophs; methanogens; and acetogens. Anaerobic extremophiles from polar expeditions include Pleistocene bacterium from Fox Permafrost Tunnel and novel acidophile from Chena Hot Springs, both in Alaska; psychrotolerant bacteria from Magellanic penguin colony in southern Patagonia; novel psychrophilic and psychrotolerant anaerobes from Patriot Hills, Antarctica; psychrotolerant anaerobes from guano of African penguin; microbial extremophiles from Schirmacher Oasis; psychrophilic and psychrotolerant anaerobes from Lake Untersee in Droning Maud Land, Antarctica; and microorganisms in situ in ice bubbles. Also discusses relevance of polar microbial extremophiles to astrobiology.
