Simons Foundation Supports Study That Finds Bacteria Can Survive In Oxygen-Free Marine Environments
New research shows a certain oxygen breathing limit for certain ocean organisms. Certain bacteria can survive deep under the sea where there is no oxygen.
There are several oxygen minimum zones in the oceans worldwide. Most species don’t survive in low oxygen except some hardiest of organisms.
Recently, some MIT oceanographers have discovered certain bacteria who can survive even in low oxygen areas...
