  • The Molnár János Cave is part of the northern discharge area of the Buda Thermal Karst System, and is the largest active thermal water cave in the capital of Hungary. To compare the prokaryotic communities, reddish-brown cave wall biofilm, black biogeochemical layers, and thermal water samples from the phreatic mixing zone of the cave were subjected to three investigative approaches, scanning electron microscopy, cultivation, and molecular cloning. According to the SEM images, multilayer… CONTINUE READING
