Tolerance of thermophilic and hyperthermophilic microorganisms to desiccation

Beblo, Kristina ; Rabbow, Elke ; Rachel, Reinhard ; Huber, Harald ; Rettberg, Petra


We examined short- and long-term desiccation tolerance of 31 strains of thermophilic and hyperthermophilic Archaea and thermophilic phylogenetically deep-branching Bacteria. Seventeen organisms showed a significant high ability to withstand desiccation. The desiccation tolerance turned out to be species-specific and was influenced by several parameters such as storage temperature, pH, substrate ...
