    Clemson research indicates abundance of microbe diversity key to healthy coastal ecosystem

    November 4, 2019

    For millions of years, symbiotic bacteria have lived inside the gill cells of Lucinidae clams found in seagrass meadows located mainly along tropical coasts, such as the Florida Keys. 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.

Scientists at Clemson University have recently published a paper indicating that the bacteria are more taxonomically diverse than previously thought.
