The members of the Archaea domain are special bacteria that survive in extreme habitats like high salt concentration, very high or low temperatures, and reducing environment. They are also termed as extremophiles. They are sub-divided into several groups depending on their physiological roles and the genomic sequences.

Explanation of Solution

The bacteria that inhabit environments with extremely high temperatures, like hot springs and hydrothermal vents, are termed as extreme thermophiles. The optimum temperature range for such bacteria is 70 to 90 degree Celsius. They belong to the Euryarchaeota group. Many enzymes are extracted from these bacteria for use in the laboratory. Some examples are Thermococcus and Pyrophilus...
