Archaea VS. Eubacteria

The EPIC Battle

Methanogens (Archaea)

Methanogens are organisms that produce methane gas. They live in oxygen free enviroments, such as thick mud or digestive tracts.

Methanogens reproduce in temperatures from 15-100C. Within their enviroments, methonagens play an important role in the degradation of complex organic compounds.

Phototrophs (Eubacteria)

Phototrophs are organisms that usually aquire their energy through photosynthesis. Not every phototroph use photosynthesis to attain their energy. Phototrophs live in many enviroments; water, land or within the human body.

Eubacteria phototrophs reproduce through binary fission.

Archaea Vs. Eubacteria (source. 'diffen.com')

Archaea and Eubacteria are both quite similar in structure. The habititats are also similar. A difference between the two is in reproduction. They both reproduce asexually throught binary fission and budding fragmentation, but eubacteria can also form spores that stay alive for years, whilst archaea cannot.
