Lodgers on manganese nodules: Sponges promote a high diversity

Jun 10, 2021

Deep down in the ocean, valuable raw materials are stored, such as nodules of manganese, iron, cobalt and copper. The resources from these nodules could help meeting our increasing demand for rare metals. However, in addition to the nodules, there is another treasure down there: A complex ecosyst...

Small "snowflakes" in the sea play a big role

May 28, 2021

In the deep waters that underlie the productive zones of the ocean, there is a constant rain of organic material called 'marine snow'. Marine snow does not only look like real snow but also behaves similarly: Large flakes are rare and fall quickly while highly abundant smaller flakes take their t...

Algal sugar as fiber for good digestion in the ocean

Mar 5, 2021

Too many carbohydrates, especially the simple, sweet sugars, can make you fat. Complex sugars like fiber, on the other hand, are an important factor for our health. Unlike simple sugars, we cannot easily digest these fibers in vegetables and grains. They are thought to work like a lubricant that ...

New form of symbiosis discovered

Mar 3, 2021

They are also called power plants of the cells: the mitochondria. They are present in almost all eukaryotic cells and they supply the cells with energy. Until now, it was assumed that only mitochondria can act as the cells’ energy providers. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Marine Micro...

Sweet marine particles resist hungry bacteria

Feb 19, 2021

Rather sweet than salty: In the ocean microalgae produce a lot of sugar during algae blooms. These enormous quantities of algal biomass are normally recycled rapidly by marine bacteria – a degradation process that is an important part of the global carbon cycle. Especially sugars have been consid...
