The carbohydrate fraction of a hot spring sulfur-turf bacterial mat was shown to contain cellulose by the examination of neutral sugar composition, methylation analysis, and the identification of free oligosacchrides obtained from an acetolyzate of the desulfurized sulfur-turf mat this suggested . So-called sulfur-turf microbial mats in sulfide containing hot springs (55-70°c, ph 73-83) in japan were dominated by a large sausage-shaped bacterium (lssb) that is closely related to the . So-called “sulfur-turf” microbial mats in sulfide containing hot springs (55–70°c, ph 73–83) in japan were dominated by a large sausage-shaped bacterium (lssb) that is closely related to the genus sulfurihydrogenibium.

Phototrophic microbial mat communities of sulphur mountain banff springs and their the highest includes the upper hot spring december 2005 for community . Hot spring microbial mats were sampled on 27 july 2002 at an average temperature of ∼60°c from octopus spring, yellowstone national park, wyoming mat material was stored in a 50-ml tube completely filled with spring water transported to southern illinois university, carbondale, il, within 3 days and stored at 4°c until further processing. Microbial mats containing the filamentous anoxygenic photosynthetic bacterium chloroflexus aggregans develop at nakabusa hot spring in japan under anaerobic conditions in these mats, interspecies interaction between sulfate-reducing bacteria as sulfide producers and c aggregans as a sulfide consumer has been proposed to constitute a sulfur cycle however, the electron donor utilized for . Sulfur-turf microbial mats develop in sulfide-containing hot spring water dominated by chemolithoautotrophic sulfur-oxidizing bacteria the sulfur-turf mat that developed at a source of hot water .
An analysis of the hot spring sulfur-turf microbial mats of japan (798 words, 2 pages) the hot spring sulfur-turf microbial mats of japan have long been of interest because of their conspicuous appearance. Ancient and modern hydrothermal systems — the geological setting bacteria in hot spring sulfur-turf microbial mats in japan structure of hot spring . So-called sulfur-turf microbial mats, which are macroscopic white filaments or bundles consisting of large sausage-shaped bacteria and elemental sulfur particles, occur in sulfide-containing hot springs in japan however, no thermophiles from sulfur-turf mats have yet been isolated as cultivable .
Serial pictures of sulfur-turf microbial mat development on the surface of stone in a sand-trap dam in the nakabusa hot spring, japan these pictures show that a white filamentous bacterial mat . Nakabusa hot spring in japan has been well-documented by geochemists and microbiologists in terms of its well-developed microbial mats (7–9, 11, 12, 19–22, 24, 30, 31, 40). However, ically modified microorganisms in the environment (32) these types of hot springs are rather common in iceland due to the present study on the microbial diversity of one high- high ground water level and climatic conditions, ie, from sulfide, neutral hot spring (sulfur mat) and one low-sulfide, melting snow and rain.
A novel sulfur-oxidizing autotrophic bacterium, strain j1at was isolated from a hot spring microbial mat the cells were gram-stain-negative, catalase-negative and oxidase-positive as sole . In situ biomass production of sulfur-turf mat 141 fig 2 serial pictures of sulfur-turf microbial mat development on the surface of stone in a sand-trap dam in the nakabusa hot spring, japan. At the nakabusa hot spring, japan, dense olive-green microbial mats develop in regions where the slightly alkaline, sulfidic effluent has cooled to 65 °cthe microbial community of such mats was analyzed by focusing on the diversity, as well as the in situ distribution and function of bacteria involved in sulfur cycling.
