This on-line news article reports that a community of extreme-loving microbes has been discovered working together to survive at the bottom of California's strange Mono Lake. Within the hypersaline and alkaline waters of Mono Lake, both chemolithotrophs and organotophs have been discovered. The article suggests that the interdependence of species seems to be conducive to life and shows how the work of microbiologists Richard Hoover and Elena Pikuta contributes to the exploration of life in the Universe.
