Bottom Line: Such information is essential for understanding the ecology of Nocardiopsis.Here we analyzed 16S rRNA, gyrB, rpoB and sodA genes of 78 Nocardiopsis strains isolated from hypersaline environments in Yunnan and Xinjiang Provinces of western China.Statistical analyses showed that spatial distance and environmental factors substantially influenced Nocardiopsis distribution in hypersaline environments: the former had stronger influence at large spatial scales, whereas the latter was more influential at small spatial scales.

ABSTRACT
The genus Nocardiopsis is a widespread group within the phylum Actinobacteria and has been isolated from various salty environments worldwide. However, little is known about whether biogeography affects Nocardiopsis distribution in various hypersaline environments. Such information is essential for understanding the ecology of Nocardiopsis. Here we analyzed 16S rRNA, gyrB, rpoB and sodA genes of 78 Nocardiopsis strains isolated from hypersaline environments in Yunnan and Xinjiang Provinces of western China. The obtained Nocardiopsis strains were classified into five operational taxonomic units, each comprising location-specific phylo- and genotypes. Statistical analyses showed that spatial distance and environmental factors substantially influenced Nocardiopsis distribution in hypersaline environments: the former had stronger influence at large spatial scales, whereas the latter was more influential at small spatial scales.

Mantel correlation between genetic distances of the four genes and geographic distance for the five identified Nocardiopsis OTUs.(A–D) panels indicate the correlation between geographic distance and genetic distances of 16S rRNA gene (r = 0.83, p = 0.005), gyrB (r = 0.81, p = 0.005), rpoB (r = 0.87, p = 0.003) and sodA (r = 0.89, p = 0.002) genes, respectively.

f3: Mantel correlation between genetic distances of the four genes and geographic distance for the five identified Nocardiopsis OTUs.(A–D) panels indicate the correlation between geographic distance and genetic distances of 16S rRNA gene (r = 0.83, p = 0.005), gyrB (r = 0.81, p = 0.005), rpoB (r = 0.87, p = 0.003) and sodA (r = 0.89, p = 0.002) genes, respectively.

Mentions: MLST of four housekeeping genes revealed significant correlations of gene sequences with geographic distance (16S rRNA: r = 0.83, p = 0.005; gyrB: r = 0.81, p = 0.005; rpoB: r = 0.87, p = 0.003; sodA: r = 0.89, p =0.002) (Fig. 3). In addition, the closely related phylo- or genotypes were present within a very small scale (<100 km) but not at distant locations (>100 km) (Fig. 3). Mantel test (r > 0.5, P < 0.05) and canonical correlation analysis showed that the differentiations of endemic genotypes of gyrB, rpoB and sodA genes were significantly correlated with the geochemistry variations of sediments from eight habitats between Yunnan and Xinjiang Provinces (Table 2; Fig. 4).
