    Hyperthermophilic microorganisms grow optimally, and sometimes exclusively, at temperatures greater than 800. Their existence has been known for only a few decades, and much remains to be learned about their physiology, biochemistry, and natural history. In fact, the upper temperature limit for microbial life is still uncertain, but it reaches to at least 113° for cultivated isolates. Extreme thermophiles are found in a wide variety of high temperature habitats, both terrestrial and marine. Hyperthermophilic microbes have a remarkable variety of lifestyles and physiologies, ranging from aerobic autotrophy to strictly anaerobic heterotrophy. The biochemical adaptations and physiological diversity of hyperthermophiles are fascinating and extremely productive topics of current research. Equally as fascinating, are the details concerning the natural history, ecology, and evolution of hyperthermophilic microbial life.
