Of special interest is the same structure of mats in soda lakes, which represent an extreme case of the terrestrial athalassic environment (Gerasimenko and Orleanski, 2004; Arp, 1999). This biocoenosis has come to attention only recently and representatives of many functional groups have been isolated and described during last decade (for review: Alkaliphilic microbial communities, 2007). , 1999; Zavarzin and Zhilina, 2000). Since soda lakes are the end basins they may be considered as some kind of natural lysimetrs for watershed and weathering thereof in continental environment.

As a variant, the trophic loop is closed by anaerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria, responsible for purple layers on the illuminated surfaces. Their development is most pronounced in mineral-rich water and even in brines. The trophic network is spatially organized in benthic cyano-bacterial mats with their regular structure of similar architecture. The upper layer up to 2 mm is occupied by cyanobacteria, followed by white sulfur oxidizers, below are purples, and in the bottom is black mud with sulfidogens.
