        Life in the Deep

        For the last ten years, marine scientists have been hard at work on a census of marine life. This audio segment from PRI's The World Science Podcast discusses some of their latest findings. Hear about strange deep sea creatures such as transparent sea cucumbers and oil eating tube worms. Learn about "marine snow," and the technology used to research 656 feet below. And find out how environmental changes are effecting life on the ocean floor.

        The World Science Podcast is a weekly production of The World.

        This segment was adapted from The World Science Podcast 42. Find out more about The World Science Podcast.
