Artificial Cyanobacterial Mats: Growth, Structure, and Vertical Zonation Patterns


The formation of cyanobacterial mats (originally induced by incubation of sediment cores in which metazoans and most other eukaryotes had been removed) was followed over approximately 2.6 years. The thickness of the mats increased at a rate of 2–3 mm per year because of accumulation of empty cyanobacterial sheaths and as a result of carbonate deposition… (More)
