The family Methanobacteriaceae
. In: The Prokaryotes: Other Major Lineages of Bacteria and the Archaea (Eds.
Predominant hindgut archaeal species among methanogens were Methanobrevibacter (75, 72, and 49%), Methanosphaera (3.3, 2.3, and 3.4%), and Methanobacteriaceae
(1.2, 0.6, and 0.7%) population in control, 15, and 30% PB, respectively, and they were linearly decreased or increased with increasing PB concentration (P < 0.05).

Phylogenetic analyses of the methanogenic Archaea community revealed a great diversity of methanogens in the permafrost including families of Methanobacteriaceae
, Methanomicrobiaceae, Methanosarcinaceae, Methanosaetaceae [16,17,19,20], methanogen group Rice cluster I (RC-I) and uncultured Rice cluster II (RC II) within the phylogenetic radiation of Methanosarcinales and Methanomicrobiales [19, 21-23] and ZC-I affiliated to Methanosarcinales , permafrost cluster I affiliated to Methanosarcinaceae , and permafrost cluster II and III affiliated to Methanosarcinales .
