Many archaea are living in extreme environments. Some live at very high
temperature (often 100 ℃ above) under the seabed such as geysers or black
chimney. Others live in very cold environments or high salt, acid or alkaline
water. However, archaea are also some neutrophils, and able to marshes, waste
water and soil were found. Many methanogenic archaea survive the digestive tract
in animals such as ruminants, termites, or human. Archaea are usually harmless
to other organisms, and the unknown are pathogenic Archaea.

Archaebacteria are a large category of living organisms. They are more commonly known as Archaea. Initially they were found in extreme environments but are now found sporadically in all kinds of habitat.

Archaebacteria are often of the extremophile variety. They can not only survive but actually thrive at extremely high temperatures, sometimes even higher than 100°C. This is why they are frequently found in black smokers and geysers, which have relatively high temperatures. For example geysers at Yellowstone National Park in America house some archaeans. Some archaeans are found in extremely cold habitats in alkaline, acidic and highly saline water.

Archaeans can be divided in to three categories depending on the habitat in which they thrive- namely thermophiles, methanogens and halophiles. Halophiles thrive in very saline environments. Methanogens thrive in anaerobic habitats and thermophiles prefer places which have extremely high temperatures.
