Biological Evolution in the Ocean


The biological evolution in the marine environment plays a crucial role in understanding the origin of life on Earth. To understand how marine life evolved, we need to study the historical geology of marine life and elemental components and processes. 3.594 kata lagi

Cyanobacteria vs Algae

Cyanobacteria are photosynthetic prokaryotic organisms (no membrane-bound nucleus).

Algae is a catch-all term for photosynthesizing single-celled eukaryotic organisms.

Microbial Ecology


Cyanobacteria: residing in our gut appear to help generate B and K vitamins that we depend upon for nutrition. Although it was originally believed that the cyanobacteria in our gut originate from the chloroplasts in plants we eat, research indicates that our gut cyanobacteria are different strains that evolved to specifically inhabit our digestive tracts and help us ferment sugars we digest into acids and alcohols.  59 kata lagi
