abstract

  • Tardigrades, commonly known as water bears, are a type of microscopic animal found across a vast array of moist and aquatic environments. Tardigrades are known for their extensive resilience due to the fact that they are also found in extreme environments such as Antarctica, deep sea vents, and mud volcanoes. They are commonly used as a model organism for scientific research. Also published on the Featured Creatures website athttp://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/MISC/tardigrade.html
