Figure 2-20 shows a bioluminescent species grown in the laboratory. Another noteworthy bacterial chemoheterotroph, Thermotoga (Figure 2-21), is a hyperthermophilic (hyper— above, therm—heat, philic—loving) Gram-negative rod. It lives in hydrothermal vent habitats and can withstand temperatures up to 95°C! It ferments a variety of carbo­ hydrates and is also capable of fixing N2 (converting N2 to ammonia). Cyanobacteria (cyan—dark blue) are photoautotrophs (though some are photoheterotrophs. Like the true plants and other eukaryotic autotrophs, they perform oxygenic (oxy—oxygen, genic—to produce) photosynthesis in which m m 20 A Photographic Atlas of Marine Biology SECTION 2 Marine Bacteria, Archaeans, and Protists oxygen is a waste product (Table 2-5).

They are thought to be the oldest metazoans and the m Table 5-1 Phylum Porifera presently comprises ~15,000 extant species (mostly marine), though their taxonomy is complex and species are hard to distinguish because of their simple basic structure and variability in form. They are considered to be the sister taxon to the Eumetazoans. Sponges are considered to be colonial organisms by some researchers and the simplest of the multicellular ­animals by others. They often are brightly colored, but are otherwise rather featureless.
