Description

Microbialites form the earliest macroscopic evidence of life, and have always been important in particular aquatic ecosystems. They demonstrate the remarkable ability of microorganisms to provide the foundation for structures that can rival coral reefs in size. Microbialites are generally assumed to form by microbial trapping and binding of detrital grains, by carbonate organomineralization of microbial biofi lms, or by inorganic mineralization around microbial templates. Here we present a...[Show more]
