Found out all about The Deep Sea at MarineBio.org
Zoe Brigham's insight:

This article also talks about different characteristics of the deep ocean which I learned even more from to use in my paper.

Bioluminescence

Bioluminescence | Adaptations of Life in the Deep Sea | Scoop.it
You may have seen the sparkle of fireflies on a summer’s night. The fireflies produce light through a chemical reaction in their glowing abdomens, a process known as bioluminescence.
Zoe Brigham's insight:

This site talks about bioluminescense which is how a lot of creatures in the deep identify things and how they are able to see in the black abyss that the bottom of the ocean is.

Deep-Sea Creature Photos -- National Geographic | Adaptations of Life in the Deep Sea | Scoop.it
Adaptation is the name of the game when you live thousands of feet below the water's surface. See how these deep-sea denizens make the most of their deep, dark home.
Zoe Brigham's insight:

This article has different pictures of creatures in the deep and has a short summary of where they live and some say how they survive. I used this article to show how creatures live in the deep and how they adapt to such harsh conditions.

Giant Squid

Giant Squid | Adaptations of Life in the Deep Sea | Scoop.it
Giant squid are elusive deep-sea animals with razor-toothed suckers and eyes the size of dinner plates. Images, videos, and facts from around the world.
Zoe Brigham's insight:

This article talks about Giant Squid and has a lot of information on how intricate the body of the squid is and how it survives in the deep. This is how I used it in my paper.

EBSCOhost: Deep-sea fish uses mirror magic to reflect light

Zoe Brigham's insight:

This article is about a fish called the spookfish. This fish is very odd and unique because it uses mirrors to reflect light in order to see in the depths of the dark ocean. The spookfish's eyes have 2 parts to it: The actual pair of eyes used for vision. However, each eye has 2 parts. One part looks up and the other part looks down. Read more to learn!

Your topic seems to be very intriguing, as do your descriptions of your first two resources. I'm sure there is a lot of information to be learned on this topic. At first glance, your MLA citation looks correct, so, well done.

Zoe Brigham's insight:

This page talks about different characteristics about the deep ocean. And that's exactly what I learned from it! I used it to talk about temperature, light, etc.

Creatures of the Deep Sea - Deep Sea Creatures on Sea and Sky

Creatures of the Deep Sea - Deep Sea Creatures on Sea and Sky | Adaptations of Life in the Deep Sea | Scoop.it
The deep sea is home to a variety of bizarre creatures. Some of them give off their own light using bioluminescence and call boiling hydrothermal vents their home.
Zoe Brigham's insight:

This article has lists of different creatures that live in the deep and what their function is down there! I used this to further my understanding of deep sea creatures and what they do.

Unusual prehistoric shark beast captured in Japan

Unusual prehistoric shark beast captured in Japan | Adaptations of Life in the Deep Sea | Scoop.it
A rare frilled shark was captured live by fishermen off the coast of Japan. The toothy eel-like creature was taken to Awashima Marine Park in Shizuoka where it later died according to Reuters..
Zoe Brigham's insight:

Here, researchers in Japan have caught a very odd, prehistoric looking shark that they tried to bring to land but it died because its body could not adapt to the conditions in the surface of water. I use this to talk about the six gilled shark in my paper.

Atlantic Wolffish: A Face only a Mother Could Love? - New England Ocean Odyssey

Atlantic Wolffish: A Face only a Mother Could Love? - New England Ocean Odyssey | Adaptations of Life in the Deep Sea | Scoop.it
Bulging of eye and jagged of tooth, the Atlantic wolffish won’t win any beauty contests, but this incredible fish has won our hearts, here at Conservation Law Foundation.
Zoe Brigham's insight:

This article talks about how interesting the Atlantic Worlffish Pair fish is and how it may not be the most attractive fish but it has a lot of really cool features to it! I am using this in my paper to explain how this type of fish adapts to the harsh conditions of the deep ocean.

EBSCOhost: Deep Life

Zoe Brigham's insight:

In this article, it talks about how bacteria can live so deep that they are under the sea floor! Scientists call them "Intraterrestrials" because they are so rare and no one has seen or knows about them, until now that is. Some of these microbes live only ten meters below the ocean floor, but some can live hundreds of meters below it. These microbes and bacteria live where it shouldn't be possible, yet somehow they do. This article tries to explain just that!
