As a result, the Bacteria and Archaea are often referred to collectively as the prokaryotes (pro, “before”; karyote, “kernel”) because they evolved before the evolution of the nucleus and other compartments. ) While the members of both groups are small and single-celled, the Bacteria and Archaea show some key differences. For example, archaeans are distinguished from bacteria by having larger components of DNA and by structural differences in their cells. However, as prokaryotes, the Bacteria and Archaea are similar in many ways.

Two miles beneath the surface, in what was thought to be nothing but barren rock, the researchers discovered life—abundant life. What they found was a world of microscopic organisms known as bacteria that had been isolated from the rest of the world’s organisms for millions of years. ” Such dramatic finds are becoming more common as biologists probe the last dark corners where life is hiding, as they peer not only into unexplored habitats, such as the deep sea, but into internal worlds, such as a giraffe’s gut.

While some bacteria thrive in unusual environments, the Archaea is the group best known for the extreme lifestyles of some of its members. 6 Better than a Bag of Chips For those who love salt, such as archaeans that are extreme halophiles, nothing beats a salt farm. Here in Thailand, seawater is being evaporated, making a more and more concentrated salt solution and creating an environment that only an archaean could love. “heat”; phile, “lover”) that live in geysers and hot springs. Others are salt lovers, or extreme halophiles (halo, “salt”).
