Community composition and density of methanogens in the foregut of the Tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii).


ABSTRACT: The composition of the methanogenic archaeal community in the foregut contents of Tammar wallabies (Macropus eugenii) was studied using 16S rRNA and methyl coenzyme reductase subunit A (mcrA) gene clone libraries. Methanogens belonging to the Methanobacteriales and a well-supported cluster of uncultivated archaeon sequences previously observed in the ovine and bovine rumens were found. Methanogen densities ranged from 7.0 x 10(5) and 3.9 x 10(6) cells per gram of wet weight.
