Short summary
Organisms living in natural environments have to cope with constantly fluctuating conditions in order to compete and survive. Hereby, membrane lipids may play an integral role. This study demonstrates that the lipid repertoire and lipid modifications in marine picoplankton living in oxygen minimum zones may be larger than previously thought. The abundant presence of non-phosphorus lipids hint at nutrient limitation within deeper depths of the ocean, even though these are not considered as such.
