Extremophiles have much to reveal about the biology of resilience, yet their study is limited by sampling and culturing difficulties [1-3]. The broad success and small size of nematodes make them advantageous for tackling these problems [4-6]. We investigated the arsenic-rich, alkaline, and hypersaline Mono Lake (CA, US) [7-9] for extremophile nematodes. Though Mono Lake has previously been described to contain only two animal species (brine shrimp and alkali flies) in its water and sediments… Expand
