Topics from this paper

Prokaryotic Metabolism and Physiology
Interkingdom microbial consortia mechanisms to guide biotechnological applications
TLDR
Current understanding of microbial interaction mechanisms involved in sustaining or developing interkingdom consortia for biotechnological applications and future research directions to develop study methods at the level of metabolites, genes and meta‐omics are reviewed. Expand
Biophysical processes supporting the diversity of microbial life in soil
TLDR
This review explores key drivers for microbial life in soils under different climates and land-use practices at scales ranging from soil pores to landscapes and delineates special features of soil as a microbial habitat and the consequences for microbial communities. Expand
Collaborative microbial Fe-redox cycling by pelagic floc bacteria across wide ranging oxygenated aquatic systems
Abstract Fe (III) -reducing bacteria (IRB) and Fe (II) -oxidizing bacteria (IOB) significantly impact the transformations and geochemical cycling of Fe. As these bacteria are thought to beExpand
Mn(II)-oxidizing Bacteria are Abundant and Environmentally Relevant Members of Ferromanganese Deposits in Caves of the Upper Tennessee River Basin
The upper Tennessee River Basin contains the highest density of our nation's caves; yet, little is known regarding speleogenesis or Fe and Mn biomineralization in these predominantly epigenicExpand
THE GEOMICROBIOLOGY OF SUSPENDED AQUATIC FLOCS: LINKS BETWEEN MICROBIAL ECOLOGY, FE(III/II)-REDOX CYCLING, & TRACE ELEMENT BEHAVIOUR
TLDR
Results demonstrate that the organic rich nature of floc exerts an important control over TE geochemistry in aquatic environments, ultimately creating a distinct solid with differing controls over TE behavior than bed sediments in close proximity. Expand

Sedimentary Features and Implications for the Precambrian Non-stromatolitic Carbonate Succession: A Case Study of the Mesoproterozoic Gaoyuzhuang Formation at the Qiangou Section in Yanqing County of Beijing
: In the long Precambrian period, stromatolitic carbonate successions were very common. However, the non-stromatolitic carbonate succession that is marked by subtidal deposits shows a sharp contrastExpand
MISS in Mesoproterozoic Nonstromatolitic Limestones: A Case Study of the Third Member of Gaoyuzhuang Formation at Qiangou Section in Beijing
Abstract The Precambrian carbonate rocks are commonly characteristic of stromatolitic carbonate succession. However, in the western segment of Yanshan area, the third member of the MesoproterozoicExpand
