Oceanic dead zones are natural laboratories for exploring biological diversity. In a study published this year in the journal Nature, scientists at Georgia Tech discovered new species of the world's most abundant organism group, a bacterial clade called SAR11, which have adapted to life in dead zones by acquiring genes necessary to breath the chemical nitrate. Other work by Tech scientists shows that dead zones in the Pacific, which contain the largest pools of the greenhouse gas methane (CH4) in the open ocean, support microbes adapted to consume methane, potentially through a process that requires these microbes to make their own oxygen. Research on dead zones is challenging scientists to devise new tools to collect and manipulate ocean microbes while maintaining the exact environmental conditions the cells experience in nature. Frank Stewart, of the School of Biological Sciences, explains.
