Archaea are substantial components of complex microbiomes in the environment and in holobionts.

Archaea interact closely with viruses, microorganisms, and holobionts such as plants, animals, and humans.

In holobionts, the archaeome reveals biogeographic patterns, indicating various functions.

Methanogens, in particular, are considered to be prominent partners in various settings, supporting bacterial fermentation processes based on syntrophy and driven by energy depletion.

No archaeal pathogen has been identified thus far.

Methodological problems hinder the proper analyses of the archaeome, including function and structural adaptations.

The archaeal double-membrane and anchored surface structures might support high-level interactions.
