Did sponge microbiomes help aerate the oceans?
Staff quoted: Fan Zhang
Article Link Permanent Link

APPEARANCES apart, they are no spongers. Tiny bacteria living inside sponges seem to be symbiotic and may have played a part in the drama that transformed Earth's deep oceans 750 million years ago. This upheaval turned seas into the oxygen-rich haven for life so familiar to us today.

Did you ever wonder why the water is so clear around coral reefs? Scientists have known for years that sponges can filter water and gather nutrients from the ocean, making it appear crystal clear. For the first time scientists at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) have identified that bacteria on sponges are harvesting phosphorus from the water for the reef ecosystem to use for nourishment. The findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
