Abstract:
Abstracts The living environment, ecological structure and species diversity of acidophilic microorganisms, and the effects of temperature and oxygen on those organisms are summarized in this paper. There exist competition, predation mutualism and synergism among acidophilic microorganisms. The study on these interactions is very important to understand bioleaching process. At present, the understanding of ecology of acidophilic microorganisms is mainly based on the traditional pure culture and isolation techniques. However, the development of molecular biology provides more scientific methods. The combination of pure culture and isolation techniques with molecular biotechnology will provide more effective methods in this field. The understanding of the ecology of acidophilic microorganisms will be beneficial to develop new mineral biological processing technologies. Tab 1, Ref 24
