Thioploca, a genus of colorless, sulphur-oxidizing, filamentous bacteria, constitutes as much as 80% of the biomass in dysaerobic surface sediments ([O2] < 0.1 ml/l bottom water) in the coastal upwelling regimes of Peru and Chile. The lipid composition of Thioploca collected from sediments from the oxygen minimum zone in the Peru upwelling region near 15°S is presented here, and we provide the first assessment of the influence of Thioploca on organic compound distributions in upwelling regime… CONTINUE READING
