Pressure X-Philes: Bacteria
Bacterial Barophiles & Barotolerant Bacteria
Also known as piezophiles, this group includes bacterial with an optimal growth pressure of 10 Mpa (~100 bar) or higher (≥98.6 atmospheres).
List of Bacterial Barophiles & Barotolerant Bacteria by Barotolerance
Here organisms are listed first by the upper end of their pressure range, then by OGMpa, then by the lower end of their pressure range, and for any organisms for which these properties are unknown, they will be listed in alphabetical order.

"Nitrosotalea is an abundant, globally distributed genus of AOA found in acidic soils (Gubry-Rangin et al., 2011). Thirty per cent of the world's soils are considered acidic (pH < 5.5; von Uexk�ll & Mutert, 1995), and ammonia oxidation in low pH soils is dominated by AOA, rather than AOB (Gubry-Rangin et al., 2010; Lehtovirta-Morley et al., 2011)."
