Characterization of dissolved organic matter in cave and spring waters using UV–Vis absorbance and fluorescence spectroscopy
The versatile ε-proteobacteria: key players in sulphidic habitats
An overview of the taxonomic classification for the class is presented, ecological and metabolic data in key sulphidic habitats are reviewed, and the ecological and geological potential of the ε-proteobacteriain modern and ancient systems are considered.

Bacterial diversity and ecosystem function of filamentous microbial mats from aphotic (cave) sulfidic springs dominated by chemolithoautotrophic "Epsilonproteobacteria".
Distribution and recovery trajectory of Macondo (Mississippi Canyon 252) oil in Louisiana coastal wetlands.
Microbial contributions to cave formation: New insights into sulfuric acid speleogenesis
The sulfuric acid speleogenesis (SAS) model was introduced in the early 1970s from observations of Lower Kane Cave, Wyoming, and was proposed as a cave-enlargement process due to primarily H 2 S…
The alligator gut microbiome and implications for archosaur symbioses
Evidence for previously unrecognized host-microbiome associations along the gastrointestinal tract from the American alligator is provided, a crown archosaur with shared ancestry to extinct taxa, including dinosaurs.
Productivity-Diversity Relationships from Chemolithoautotrophically Based Sulfidic Karst Systems
The discovery of diverse communities at deep-sea hydrothermal vents and cold seeps brought to light the importance of microorganisms as significant contributors to ecosystem autotrophic processes.
Acidic Cave-Wall Biofilms Located in the Frasassi Gorge, Italy
Qualitative energy-dispersive x-ray analysis was used to determine that the crystals present on the cave walls, associated with the microbial biofilm, were composed of calcium and barium sulfate.
