ResumenThe Archaea represent one of the three domains of life and are distinguished from the Bacteria and Eukarya both phylogenetically and biochemically. As a group, the Archaea are physiologically diverse and inhabit a wide range of ecosystems, including the most extreme environments on Earth. While traditionally thought to be restricted to just a few phyla and primarily inhabiting extreme environments, Archaea are now known to be globally distributed across many environments and of significant importance in multiple biogeochemical cycles. The Archaea also comprise a phylogenetically and metabolically diverse group of organisms in several recognised phyla and many more recently proposed phylum-level lineages representing uncultivated organisms. The use of environmental genomics to understand uncultured archaeal diversity has recently shed light on many new potential lineages of Archaea and continues to expand and revise our understanding of Archaea in natural environments
