DNA stable-isotope probing of oil sands tailings pond enrichment cultures reveals different key players for toluene degradation under methanogenic and sulfidogenic conditions
An uncultivated Desulfosporosinus sp. degraded toluene in oil sands tailings enrichment cultures incubated under methanogenic conditions but, surprisingly, was outcompeted by a Desulfobulbaceae member under sulfate-reducing conditions.

Anaerobic alkane biodegradation by cultures enriched from oil sands tailings ponds involves multiple species capable of fumarate addition
Microbes in oil sands tailings ponds can degrade saturated hydrocarbons under both methanogenic and sulphidogenic conditions but the community structure shifts in both expected and unexpected ways.

Ecology and biotechnological potential of the thermophilic fermentative Coprothermobacter spp.
The microbial ecology of Coprothermobacter spp. is attracting great attention due to their proteolytic properties, syntrophic association with methanogens and the possible exploitation in several biotechnological processes.
