Acidic environments.

Abstract

This chapter summarizes the different types of acidic environments that exist and their occurrence worldwide, and discusses the diversity of life present in them, including that of prokaryotes, Archaea, and unicellular eukaryotes. The chapter focuses on the ecology or ecologically relevant traits, i.e., organisms living in 'natural habitats', summarizing food-web ecology, metabolic and physiological characteristics. The chapter concludes with a brief account on acidic environments as extraterrestrial analogues.
