A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Prokaryote Evolution.
Life occurs in many incredible forms in many unexpected places. It isn't always obvious when something is alive so what do you need to look for to make that determination?
Looks at claims of arsenic based life as a model of the scientific process. Investigates possible alternate life forms and what conditions could lead to them.
Covers hydrothermal vents and the chemosynthetic based communities found there.
Covers microbial ecology and how bacteria develop resistance to environmental challenges.
Covers life in anoxic environments exploring the chemical basis of life, addressing exobiology, evolution, and ecology.
Covers marine snow and energy flow throughout the oceans and how global wide changes affect the cycling of materials through the ocean.
Covers human gut biome and current research relating to its importance in human health and disease. Looks at the use of molecular techniques to study these organisms.
Looks at how the ecology and evolution of the horseshoe crab led to compounds useful to medicine.
Covers the formation of gas hydrates, looking at how they form the base of some ecosystems and are being looked at as a fuel source.
