    Methods Enzymol 397:58-77. 2005
    ..Hence, anaerobic techniques have to be used for the preparation of media as well as for the cultivation of microorganisms. Furthermore, special caution is needed in the preparation of ferric iron oxides and humic acids...

    K L Straub
    Max Planck Institut für Marine Mikrobiologie, Bremen, Germany
    Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 51:1805-8. 2001
    ..On the basis of physiological and phylogenetic data, strain Dfr1T (= DSM 12179T = OCM 796T) is described as Geobacter bremensis sp. nov. and strain Dfr2T (= DSM 12255T = OCM 797T) as Geobacter pelophilus sp. nov...

    FEMS Microbiol Lett 243:59-64. 2005
    ..Our findings presented here suggest that this interpretation needs to be re-evaluated. In addition to the origin in oxic environments, 'geohopanoids' may originate from ancient anaerobic environments as well...
