  • Deep sea isolation: Hypersaline 'islands' harbor unique life

    Deep in the ocean exist super salty anoxic basins that form 'islands' allowing evolution to vary between communities of ciliated plankton. These unique communities provide an opportunity to observe multiple results of evolution from the same stock and different solutions to environmental difficulties.
