Acid mine drainages (AMDs) are characterized as low pH water containing metal, which is the best-known habitat for the microorganisms described as acidophiles. Most of these members do not survive above pH 4.0; therefore they are acidophilic. Because of these metabolic properties of acidophilic microorganisms, AMD is accepted as a model system in biogeochemical studies on iron and sulfur cycles for the analysis of microbial ecology.
