Dependence of Reproduction Rate on Pressure as a Hallmark of Deep-Sea Bacteria

By A. Aristides Yayanos, Allan S. Dietz and R. Van Boxtel

Abstract

Strains of bacteria in axenic culture were isolated from samples of depths between 1,957 and 10,476 m of the Pacific Ocean. All of the bacteria from this range of depths were barophilic. The pressure at which the rate of reproduction was maximal was found to be correlated with the depth of origin of the isolates
