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 Red Tide in the Northeast

This Rhode Island Sea Grant fact sheet provides information about red tide algal blooms in New England. It addresses where and when red tides occur, how to know if shellfish are safe to consume, and other important facts about red tide. The site features a black and white picture of the dinoflagellate responsible for red tide in New England and a regional map of where infected shell fish have...

View Resource We're in Hot Water Now: Hydrothermal Vents

In this National Geographic lesson, students will use National Geographic's Yellowstone internet module to learn about the processes that drive geysers. The activity involves learning about hydrothermal vents and uniquely adapted animals that live near the vents with the aid of pictures and maps. The activity concludes with an opportunity to create an aquarium exhibit which showcases some of...

View Resource Metazoans in Extreme Environments: Adaptations of Hydrothermal Vent and Hydrocarbon Seep Fauna

This Gravitational and Space Biology Bulletin article examines the challenges of living on or near a hydrothermal vent or hydrothermal seep system. It particularly In particular, it describes the diversity and adaptations of multicellular animals that are capable of surviving extreme temperature (hot and cold), hypoxia/anoxia (low/no oxygen), and toxicity (sulfides and heavy metals).

View Resource Life in Extreme Environments: The Universe May Be More Habitable Than We Thought, Part 2

This article explores microbial life in extreme environments associated with salinity, acidity, alkalinity, high temperature, low temperature, radiation, gravity, and pressure. It also introduces the role of extremophiles in astrobiology followed by brief descriptions of Mars, the moons of Jupiter, and Panspermia. This is the second part of a two-part article. A link is directed to part one,...
