    Abstract. A classification of hypersaline waters is proposed on the basis of the food chain structure of their biota. Four steps of increasing salinity and respective shortening of the food‐chains are.   This book presents the latest results in the exploration of halophilic bacteria, archaea, fungi and viruses. Basic and molecular aspects as well as possible biotechnological applications of halophiles are highlighted by leading scientists. Topics include: the Pages:

    A great variety of hypersaline environments exist, here defined as environments with salt concentrations exceeding seawater salinity. These include natural inland salt lakes such as Great Salt Lake, Utah, and the Dead Sea, alkaline soda lakes with salt concentrations often close to saturation, and man-made saltern ponds for the production of salt from : Aharon Oren. The second section describes the occurrence and functioning of these organisms in the Great Salt Lake, the Dead Sea, solar saltern ponds, alkaline soda lakes, and other hypersaline environments worldwide. Each chapter contains an extensive list of references. No other book provides in-depth up-to-date coverage of all subjects described.

A hypersaline lake is a landlocked body of water that contains significant concentrations of sodium chloride or other salts, with saline levels surpassing that of ocean water (%, i.e.

35 grams per litre or pounds per US gallon). Specific microbial and crustacean species thrive in these high-salinity environments that are inhospitable to most lifeforms. The present work analyzes and summarizes the results of long-term research on hypersaline lake and lagoon ecosystems in the Crimea, along with the literature data.
