methanotrophs Aerobic respiration (turtles, fish) Photosynthesis-chemolithotroph Autotroph biomass CO 2 Anaerobic respiration and fermentation Methane (CH4) Methane (CH4) methnogensis methogenesis Acetate +water acetogenesis CO 2 Fermentation Cellulose (plant matter) MIDTERM REVIEW GREAT PLATE COUNT ANOMALY -we can only culture a small proportion of bacteria in a given environment using standard plating conditions (PACE) -amount of culturable cells in freshwater sample ~10 6 cell/ml (WHITMAN) PLATE MEDIA USED: Plate Count Agar-predicted more recovery since has lots of nutrients. More likely to get the “weeds” or Pond water agar: more like the actual environment, predicted to have less recovery Paper Summaries Torsvik : explains why soil is more diverse than water along with various factors that affect soil diversity. Genome annealing was used to assess complexity of genome and diversity Whitman: Gave an estimate of the total cell number of prokaryotic cells on earth, productivity rates of environments, also the amount of elements that they contain.
