What type of organisms use chemosynthesis, did you know?
Extremophiles are organisms that can live in very harsh environments. It is a classic symbiotic relationship.
The sulfide is metabolized by bacteria living in the tubeworms and the chemosynthetic energy produced sustains both organisms. Habitats for chemosynthetic bacteria are usually found in the ocean depths, where a mineral soup is leaking out of the seafloor via thermal vents.
Photosynthesis may take place in marine or terrestrial environments where the producing organisms are able to use sunlight as a source of energy. These organisms are termed based on the conditions in which they grow, thus, some are thermophiles, psychrophiles, acidophiles, halophiles, etc.
