The ‘Mount Everest’ of bacteria discovered in Caribbean swamps
The largest-known bacterium – a vermicelli-shaped organism that was discovered in shallow mangrove swamps in the Caribbean and is big enough to be seen with the naked eye – is redefining what is possible for bacteria, Earth’s most ancient life form. Scientists said on Thursday the bacterium, called Thiomargarita magnifica, is noteworthy not merely for its size – colossal for a single-celled organism at up to about eight-tenths of an inch (2 cm) long – but also because its internal architecture is unlike other bacteria.
Scientists probe link between ‘snow blood’ and climate change
Standing on a snowy mountainside about 2,500 metres above sea level, Eric Marechal holds up a crimson test-tube. Inside is an algae sample known as “snow blood,” a phenomenon that accelerates Alpine thaw and that scientists worry is spreading. “These algae are green. But when it’s in the snow, it accumulates a little pigment like sunscreen to protect itself,” said Marechal, research director at Grenoble’s Scientific Research National Center, who was collecting laboratory samples on Le Brevent mountain with teammates.
