Caption: Salt lake research, Senegal. Microbiologist Bernard Oliver holding up a salt crust from Lake Retba (the 'Rose Lake'), a salt lake in Senegal. The pink colour of the lake (not seen) is due to extremophile bacteria that are found in its waters and in crusts like these. In this case, the bacteria are halophiles, thriving on the high salt concentration that ranges from 80 to 300 grams per litre. Oliver works for the French Development Research Institute (IRD), which studies the relationship between humans and the environment.
