Microbial Wonders of the Deep explores a number of interesting and highly adaptive organisms within some of the most extreme environments imaginable- those of the deep ocean. The website focuses on marine bacteria, particularly psychrophiles, thermophiles, barophiles, halophiles, and those that are bioluminescent. It also offers an introduction to marine ecology including depth zones of the ocean, circulation patterns, and nutrient cycling. Each page is enriched with images, scientific illustrations, and useful links.
