Biological Classification – Archaebacteria (Primitive Bacteria)

Bacteria which live in harsh habitats such as extreme salty areas (halophiles), hot springs (thermoacidophiles) and marshy areas (methanogens) come under Archaebacteria, they are also referred to as Extremophiles.

 

Archaebacteria have a different cell wall structure which is made of pseudomurein and this feature is responsible for their survival in extreme conditions.

 

Methanogens are present in the gut of several ruminant animals such as cows and buffaloes and they are responsible for the production of methane (biogas) from the dung of these animals.
