Des animaux sous-marins impossibles à classer sur l'arbre de la vie

Des animaux sous-marins impossibles à classer sur l'arbre de la vie | Environment and Biodiversity | Scoop.it

Provenant des profondeurs du Pacifique, ces créatures ressemblant à des champignons présentent des similitudes avec des formes de vie datant de 600 millions d'années.

C'est l'un de ces mystères dont seule la nature a le secret. Deux espèces d'animaux marins à la forme de champignons ont été découvertes dans les profondeurs de l'océan Pacifique, entre – 400 et – 1 000 mètres de profondeur, au sud-est de l'Australie. Des créatures si méconnues qu'elles n'entrent dans aucune des familles de la classification des êtres vivants.

The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program

The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program | Environment and Biodiversity | Scoop.it

Too much acid in the ocean is bad news for sea life. Acid eats away at calcium carbonate, the primary ingredient of shells and skeletons that many ocean animals depend on for survival. The shell pictured here is a victim of this process. The normally-protective shell is so thin and fragile, it is transparent.
