AbstractBacteria, Archaea, and Eukarya include numerous thermophiles that are ubiquitous and have been detected in a variety of environments covering a really broad range of temperatures among factors. This suggests a great adaptability to both environmental conditions and nutrient sources which places thermophiles as a major target for environmental and evolutive studies with a great biotechnological potential as source for thermophilic enzymes and the biodegradation of various recalcitrant pollutants. While growth under optimal laboratory conditions is well studied, the potential for thriving under nonoptimal conditions, far from those considered ideal for a microorganism, remains to be studied. This chapter highlights possible development of novel methodology for the analysis of thermophilic microorganisms, which is applicable to other organisms, under natural conditions and for a broad range of extreme environments ranging from cold to hot temperatures, water activity, pH, and salinity as major naturally occurring extreme events. The mobile group II intron (MGI) functional diversity and abundance are assumed to represent a key feature indicator for the use of the full potential of microbial enzymes and a basic physiological process needed to understand microbial capabilities to grow and thrive under extreme conditions.
