Photosynthesis-Induced Biofilm Calcification and Calcium Concentrations in Phanerozoic Oceans
It is shown that Phanerozoic oceans sustaining calcified cyanobacteria must have had considerably higher calcium concentrations than oceans of today, which can now be explained as a result of high dissolved inorganic carbon concentrations.

Substantial differences in the lipid composition of microbial consortia sampled from distinct compartments of AOM-driven carbonate reefs growing in the northwestern Black Sea offer a tool for the study of recent and especially of fossil methane environments.

SummaryFrom shallow water caves of fringing reefs related to continental islands of the Lizard Island Section thrombolitic micritic microbialites were observed. The microbialites exhibit always a…

The bacterial and archaeal community composition and its alteration along the vertical stratification by large-scale analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences of the nine different mat layers generally changed from Euryarchaeota to uncultured members of the ThaumarchaeOTA (mainly Marine Benthic Group B) with increasing depth.
Cold seep deposits of Beauvoisin (Oxfordian; southeastern France) and Marmorito (Miocene; northern Italy): microbially induced authigenic carbonates
Abstract The relation of two well-known ancient carbonate deposits to hydrocarbon seepage was confirmed by this study. Archaea are found to be associated with the formation of Oxfordian seep…
