TitleNiche partitioning of diverse sulfur oxidizing bacteria at hydrothermal vents
Study TypeOther
Abstract In the dark ocean primary production is carried out by chemolithoautotrophic microorganisms, with the oxidation of reduced sulfur compounds being a major driver for microbial carbon fixation. At highly sulfidic hydrothermal fields a variety of microorganisms oxidizing sulfur compounds can be observe .. [more]
