These bacteria play a crucial role in the clam’s survival while also contributing to the overall health of the seagrass in which the clams live. As important as the bacteria are, little was known about their makeup until now. Scientists at Clemson University have recently published a paper indicating that the bacteria are more taxonomically diverse than previously thought.
