- Bacterial diversity in peat bogs of the karst origin was studied with the use of traditional inoculation methods and modern molecular techniques. Representatives of phylogenetic groups of Proteobacteria and Acidibacteria predominated among the domain of Bacteria. Aquaspirillum and Bacillus predominated in the saprotrophic bacterial complex. The amount of actinobacteria in the studied peat samples was higher than that in typical oligotrophic peat bogs.
