There is also an unquantified contribution to primary productivity made by anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria of the genus Ectothiorhodospira (Grant 1992) also seen in other geographical areas (Imhoff et al. 1979; Kompantseva et al. 2005), such as the Transbaikal region and the Wadi al Natrun lakes in Egypt. Rhodobaca spp. (Boldareva et al. 2008) and Rubribacterium sp. (Boldareva et al. 2009) have also been recorded. It is probable that hypersaline lakes during periods of dilution in any rainy season contain related cyanobacteria and similar anoxygenic phototrophs that may be responsible for primary productivity (Grant 2004).

Neutral lakes develop where Ca2+ and Mg2+ levels are high. High Mg2+ lakes are more acidic due to reactions involving sepiolite precipitation lakes have to be of necessity alkali-loving or at least alkali-tolerant. The term ‘‘alkaliphile’’ is usually reserved for microorganisms growing optimally or very well at pH values above 9, often with pH optima for growth around 10, showing little, or no growth, at near neutral pH values. ’’ Soda Lake Chemoorganotrophs Soda lakes have high levels of organic matter that supports dense populations of organotrophic prokaryotes.
