More Complexity in Marine Microbial Communities
TNRTB Archive – Retained for reference information
Researchers continue to uncover evidence for a supernatural Designer as they gain understanding of the complex interactions within the marine microbial community and the environment. For example, the rate of nitrogen fixation in the ocean can markedly alter the abundance relationships of nutrients. Recent discoveries reveal that the rate of oceanic nitrogen fixation is not limited simply by the iron content, but can be limited by other elements and even colimited by these additional elements. This more complex relationship allows the ocean to respond to climatic changes and may provide feedback mechanisms that provide controls on atmospheric temperatures. Such highly complex environmental and biological relationships can be explained by a biblically predicted cosmic creation model.
