Study TypeOther
Abstract Invertebrates flourishing at ca. 3000 m deep oil seeps at Campeche knolls, southern gulf of Mexico, harbor vast chemosynthetic microbial communities. Among these communities, we discovered Cycloclasticus-related bacteria. Cycloclasticus were found in association with mussel (Bathymodiolus heckerae) .. [more]
