View Resource Research Team Discovers First Evidence of Microbes Living in a Rock Glacier

This National Science Foundation (U.S.) press release reports that scientists have discovered evidence of microbial activity in a rock glacier high above tree line in the Rocky Mountains, a barren environment previously thought to be devoid of life. Included in this NSF press release are links to all NSF affiliated pages.

View Resource Paleoceanography

This National Climate Data Center collection features links to climate data derived from ocean records. These include CLIMAP (sea surface temperature reconstructions), SPECMAP (a reconstruction based on planktonic counts and isotopic values and age and sea surface temperature models), Relative sea level, Calcium carbonate, and Foraminifera (shelled marine microorganisms) data proxies.

View Resource In Full Bloom

This website offers a brief overview of Red Tide and the toxic algae responsible for it. Several words and phrases within the summary are hyperlinked to more detailed explanations on remote sites. A data activity in which students in grades 9-12 can analyze graphs with real data from 1997-2000 is included at the bottom of the site. This activity conforms to national science correlation...

View Resource Life in Extreme Environments: The Universe May Be More Habitable Than We Thought, Part 1

This article explores microbial life in extreme environments by summarizing the requirements for Life as we know it, such as chemistry, water, and oxygen. It also introduces extremophiles and lists the environmental parameters of Life, briefly discussing life in dry environments. This is the first section of a two-part article. A link is provided to Part 2, which includes extreme environments...

View Resource Winogradsky Columns

This is an exercise about Winogradsky Columns with emphasis placed on the formation and properties of microbial biofilms. It includes background reference material, a field/lab exercise, and several applications. Applications include methods for sampling column layers and a description of how to measure the electro-chemical gradient that develops within the column. Scientific illustrations and...
