Marine microbes march to the beat of the same drum

The ocean is known for its waves and rhythms, and so it turns out, are its microbes. Not only do photosynthetic species adopt a night and day cycle, as you might anticipate, but even their non-photosynthetic cousins dance to the same tune.Cyanobacteria ... [Published New Scientist - Jul 11 2014]

Quotes

"We usually think of the ocean as a big stew, but now we see a coordination that could involve 'talking' between microbes, timing with the day, and responding to the environment" says Ottesen
"Most phytoplankton at least have molecular clocks that allow them to change their metabolic activities over the course of the year as day length changes" Karl told Live Science
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The results suggest the potential for predicting the abundance of broad bacterioplankton groups throughout the Sargasso Sea using only a few environmental parameters."
...But we completely ignore the main form of life that rules our great bodies of water—single-celled organisms. "There are an octillion or more... as many blue-green cells floating in the sunlit waters of earth as there are atoms organized in a human body." And yet these microbes (so fucking many of them all over the place: air, bathrooms, a teaspoon of soil)—and this is where Money purposely steps on some...
