Transcript of Concept Map

Specialized Structures
Many types of bacteria and eukaryotes can adapt to extreme conditions by using specialized features
Microorganisms
Living Without
One of the most remarkable things about extremeophiles is that they have adapted to minimalistic enviornments.
Concept Map

Thermofiles
Thermofiles can withstand extreme temperatures
Implications
Many proteins from extremophiles can be utilized in research.

-ex: Taq polymerase
Life in Space
Because certain microorganisms are able to live in very limited enviornments, they pose interesting questions to researchers about whether there could be life on planets in our own solar system!
Examples
In class we saw how some microorganisms can live miles underground, or at the deepest trenches of the ocean.
Microorganisms can be bacteria, eukarya, or archaea. Microorganisms are specially adapted to their enviornment and represent one of the most diverse class of species.

Evolution
Microorganisms were the first creatures on earth. Because of their short lifespans they evolve quickly

Chemotrophs
Chemoautotrophs:
get carbon from the enviornment in the form of CO2. Thier energy source can come from chemicals present in the enviornment, like sulfur or iron which contain "high energy electrons"
Chemoheterotrophs:
Rely on primary producers for a carbon and energy source.
Phototrophs
Photoautotrophs
: Carbon source is CO2 from the enviornment, energy comes from photons which create "high energy electrons."
Photoheterotrophs
: Carbon source is reliant upon other organisms, Energy source is from sunligt.

Acidophiles have been found in the most acidic enviornments
