Archaebacteria Examples


Archaebacteria have been part of the six-kingdom of life system for quite some time now. Although they are similar to regular bacteria or Eubacteria in that neither of them have DNA contained within a membrane, they have a very distinct difference. Archaebacteriaare different from eubacteria in that they do not have peptidoglycan in their cell walls. Archaebacteria are typically found in extreme environments.

Examples of Archaebacteria:

1. Halobacterium found in salt environments.

2. Methanobacterium found in methane heavy environments within the earth.

3. Sulfur loving bacterium found near deep sea vents.

4. Thermophiles found in hot springs.
