Characterization of selected isolates from hypersaline lakes in Western Australia and Victoria, Australia


"Compared to the amount of work on alkaline to neutral hypersaline environments, acidic hypersaline environments have been barely studied. Specifically, very little is known about the microbial populations present in the acid hypersaline environments of Australia. Fieldwork indicated that two lakes from Australia, Lake Brown and Lake Tyrrell, each have 15% total dissolved salt and pH values of 4.5 and 5.9, respectively. This makes them ideal candidates for the study of microbial populations in moderately acidic hypersaline systems"--Abstract, page iv.
