Since the general recognition of the Archaebacteria, research into the evolution, metabolism, molecular biology and ecological roles of these fastidious anaerobes has proceeded at an ever-increasing pace.

Investigations of the biochemistry of the pathways have revealed novel enzymes with metal and cofactor requirements that have introduced new principles of biochemistry. Key Concepts Methanogenesis is the final step in the biological decomposition of biomass in the absence of oxygen.

Mean rates of methanogenesis were 3, and μmol m-3 wet sediment d⁻¹, for intertidal (up to 25 cm depth) and sub-tidal sediments (first 5 cm depth), respectively.

Methanogenesis is the dominating terminal OM degradation process in anoxic freshwater environment. Methanogenesis has been reported to account for 20–56% of the total carbon mineralization in lakes (Table 6).

CH 4 oxidation can be comparable to primary production, and has the potential to rapidly consume large amounts of O 2. Methanogenesis or biomethanation is the formation of methane by microbes known as sms capable of producing methane have been identified only from the domain Archaea, a group phylogenetically distinct from both eukaryotes and bacteria, although many live in close association with anaerobic production of methane is an important and widespread form.

Methanogenesis is a reductive process under strictly anaerobic conditions. It involves reduction of C 1 compounds (CO 2, CO, CH 3 OH, and CH 3 NH 2) mainly by H 2, and also the disproportionation of acetate, formiate, or of the methanogenic archaea are extremely thermophilic (growth at ≈ °C).

Key Concepts Methanogenesis is the final step in the biological decomposition of biomass in the absence of oxygen. P E Rouvière, R S Wolfe.

Methanogenesis is a form of respiration in which carbon rather than oxygen is used as an electron acceptor. Bacteria that perform anaerobic fermentation often partner with methanogenic bacteria. During anaerobic fermentation, large organic molecules are broken down into hydrogen and acetic acid, which can be used in methanogenic respiration.

The extent of regulation of genes essential for methanogenesis and other fundamental processes in response to temperature is consistent with a role in providing the cell with an ecological advantage in cold environments.
