Biology in the News [see folder on BB] Near a small village in southern China, about 3000 newly discovered fossils are revealing many new insights from a 600 million year old community of seaweeds and worm‐like metazoans the Lan±an forma±on this is a black shale forma±on, a rock type known to be able to preserve fossils very well Thus far, 15 new species have been iden±Fed This is some of the earliest informa±on about life aIer the "snowball earth" age ended about 635 million years ago (mya) geological evidence indicates an oxygen rich local environment, even though the oceans were largely oxygen‐free at that ±me ‐ sugges±ng that the oxygen content of the oceans has varied throughout evolu±onary ±me since cyanobacteria Frst oxygenated the oceans 2‐4 billion years ago "brief oxic episodes" have been proposed to account for the unusual diversity of the fossil community at this site/±me a return of anoxic condi±ons would then have ex±nguished this life hQp://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp? mc_ev=click

Major Prokaryote groups Chlamydias smallest bacteria (0.2‐1.5 µm dia.) on average Gram negaCve cocci with complex life cycle Obligate parasites (apparently cannot produce much ATP by themselves) Various infecCon types in humans, incl. STD

Obligate versus facultaCve Obligate indicates an organism must do some thing e.g. ±hlamydias are obligate pathogens FacultaCve means an organism can do one thing in one situaCon and another thing in a di²erent situaCon e.g. many bacteria that grow as symbionts in animal guts can also grow in isolaCon in the laboratory (symbiosis means a close, long‐term associaCon; parCcipants in a symbiosis are called “symbionts”)
