Abstract

Extremophilic micro-organisms, Archaea in particular, have been the objects of intense studies (Kandler, 1992) because they grow in unusual habitats. Archaea, a phylogenetically coherent separate group different from Eubacteria and Eukarya, comprises a variety of extremophilic bacteria which live segregated into a few peculiar ecological niches characterized by extreme environmental parameters such as high temperature, acidic or alkaline pH values, and saturated salt solutions.
