Abstract: The biogas process is dominated by five bacteria and four Archaea. This species show, detected by Fluorescence-in-situ-hybridization (FISH) and quantification real time PCR, variations in the abundance over time and different plants. In six identically anaerobic biogas digesters the influence of punctual and semi-continuous additions of the intermediate products acetate and butyrate results in rising gas volume and constant abundance of the microorganisms.
