We provide a survey of the huge diversity of microorganisms now known to be capable of growth on methane (methanotrophs) or a wide range of other one-carbon compounds, which lack internal carbon–carbon bonds (methylotrophs), including methanol, the methylamines, halomethanes, and methylated-sulfur compounds. The habitats in which these are found range from oxic soils and waters through to anoxic sediments, acidic and alkaline lakes and soils, and to plant and animal carriers. Details of the media and methods for the isolation of methanotrophs and methylotrophs are given, along with the microbiological, biochemical, and molecular methods applied to the detection, isolation, and culture of the organisms. Our literature survey enables further in-depth information on the organisms, habitats, and detailed methodological protocols to be accessed.
