Brazilian research on extremophiles in the context of astrobiology
(CAMBRIDGE UNIV PRESSNEW YORK, 2012)
Extremophiles are organisms adapted to grow at extreme ranges of environmental variables, such as high or low temperatures, acid or alkaline medium, high salt concentration, high pressures and so forth. Most extremophiles ...
High-Up: A Remote Reservoir of Microbial Extremophiles in Central Andean Wetlands
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-12)
The Central Andes region displays unexplored ecosystems of shallow lakes and salt flats at mean altitudes of 3700 m. Being isolated and hostile, these so-called ?High-Altitude Andean Lakes? (HAAL) are pristine and have ...
The use of extremophilic microorganisms in industrial recovery of metals
(John Wiley, 2013)
Probing the limits of extremophilic life in extraterrestrial environment-simulated experiments
(Cambridge University Press, 2012-08)
Astrobiology is a relatively recent scientific field that seeks to understand the origin and dynamics of life in the Universe. Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain life in the cosmic context throughout human ...
UV Resistance and Photoreactivation of Extremophiles from High-Altitude Andean Lakes
he HAAL are natural laboratories for exploring and monitoring in situ interactions between the geophysical environment and the dynamics of biodiversity. Solar irradiation (including high UV-B doses) is without doubt the ...
