Hot springs and hydrothermal systems occurring within volcanic areas are inhabited by hyperthermophilic microorganisms, some of which grow at temperatures up to 110 degrees C. Hyperthermophiles grow anaerobically or aerobically by diverse metabolic types. Within the high temperature ecosystems, primary production is independent from solar energy.
