Knowledge of the bacterial community structure in sediments is essential to better design restoration strategies for eutrophied lakes. In this regard, the aim of this study was to quantify the abundance and activity of bacteria involved in nutrient and iron cycling in sediments from four Azorean lakes with distinct trophic states (Verde, Azul, Furnas and Fogo). Inferred from quantitative PCR, bacteria performing anaerobic ammonia oxidation were the most abundant in the eutrophic lakes Verde, Azul and Furnas (4.5-16.6%), followed by nitrifying bacteria (0.8-13.0%), denitrifying bacteria (DNB) (0.5-6.8%), iron-reducing bacteria (0.2-1.4%) and phosphorus-accumulating organisms (
