Hibernation in freshwater turtles: softshell turtles (Apalone spinifera) are the most intolerant of anoxia among North American species.
Of relevance also are the energetic mechanisms of low-oxygen tolerant species, such as the brine shrimp Artemia franciscana, whose quiescent embryos respond to long-term anoxia through down-regulation of metabolic processes and cessation of the transcription of mitochondrial proteins (Kwast & Hand 1996.
Severe anoxia causes 'dead zones' in the water where low levels of oxygen cause marine life to suffocate and die.
A wide range of extinction mechanisms have been proposed for the PT marine mass extinction, including marine anoxia, volcanic winter, hypercapnia, global warming, ocean acidification and increased sediment flux (Song et al.
Through phylogenetic analysis, the research team discovered that modern deep-sea mussels are the descendants of shallow-water mussels, and their ancestors migrated to the deep sea approximately 110 million years ago, providing evidence to support a hypothesis that their ancestors survived through an extinction event during the global anoxia period associated with the Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum which occurred around 57 million years ago.
