Archaeal diversity and community structure in the compartmented gut of highert termites

Phylogenetically higher termites emit higher amounts of methane than lower termites, but the reason for this phenomenon has not been clear. Our comparative study based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing and qPCR analysis of archaeal communities in the guts of higher termites revealed that unlike the lower...
