Entry: Anaerobic (rumen processes)

URI: http://registry.it.csiro.au/def/agriculture/nlmp/Anaerobic-rumen-processes

In the absence of oxygen. A process relying on microbial communities that can live without oxygen. Microorganisms that do not take up molecular oxygen from the growth environment are described as living anaerobically. Some species of microorganisms that grow under anaerobic conditions where the oxygen tension of the growth environment is extremely low are known as obligate anaerobes. These organisms are generally killed by the intermediate reactive oxygen species generated when oxygen is partially reduced. ATP production in anaerobic organisms is achieved either by fermentation or anaerobic respiration. Anaerobic conditions are conducive to the conversion of organic carbon into methane (CH4) rather than carbon dioxide (CO2) facilitated by methanogenic archaea.
