Abstract. Scanning electron microscopy and X-ray dispersive energy microanalysis were used to investigate the formation of carbonate crystals by Deleya halophila. The formation of calcium carbonate crystals (polymorphous aragonite) by D. halophila is a sequential process that commences with a nucleus formed by the aggregation of a few calcified bacterial cells and the subsequent accumulation of more calcified cells and carbonate, which acts to weld the bacteria together. The process leads to… 
Amorphous Ca-phosphate precursors for Ca-carbonate biominerals mediated by Chromohalobacter marismortui
The study of aragonite precipitation by Chromohalobacter marismortui during the early stages of culture experiments, and its relation to bacterial metabolic pathways, shows that carbonate nucleation occurs after precipitation of an amorphous Ca phosphate precursor phase on bacterial cell surfaces and/or embedded in bacterial films.
Biomineralization processes of calcite induced by bacteria isolated from marine sediments
Evidence is provided that a variety of marine bacteria can induce calcium carbonate precipitation, and may influence the marine carbonate cycle in natural environments.
Carbonate Precipitation of Bacterial Strains Isolated from Sediments and Seawater: Formation Mechanisms
This article presents a research study on carbonate formation in solid and liquid media by Thalassospira sp., Halomonas sp., Bacillus pumilus, and Pseudomonas grimontii, four bacterial strains
Morphological Evolution during the Formation of Carbonate Spherulite in Citrobacter freundii Culture
A large number of microbes can mediate the formation of carbonate spherulite.Tailing the process of carbonate spherulite formation is the key to understand the mechanism.Using optic microscope and

Preliminary examination, isolation and partial sequencing of 16S rRNA gene showed that the major microbial population participating in calcite precipitation is heterotrophic and includes mainly Bacillus sp.
Calcium Carbonate Crystals Formation by Ureolytic Bacteria Isolated from Australian Soil and Sludge
Ureolytic bacteria were isolated selectively from sludge and soil samples (Perth, Western Australia). Three isolates were genetically examined by 16S rRNA. They were mostly closely related to
Ureolytic Bacteria and Calcium Carbonate Formation as a Mechanism of Strength Enhancement of Sand
Ureolytic bacteria have a great involvement in calcium carbonate precipitation for different applications starting from removing contaminants and surface coating of monumental estuaries to


Calcium carbonate formation by Deleya halophila: Effect of salt concentration and incubation temperature
Abstract The precipitation of calcium carbonate by strains of the moderately halophilic species Deleya halophila was studied. The influence of salinity and temperature on the formation and type of
Calcite precipitation by marine bacteria
Calcite precipitation occurs when trimethylamino‐N‐oxide and medium are added to surface waters collected above Lodestone and Keeper Reefs of the Great Barrier Reef. The calcium content of the water
The mechanism of calcium and magnesium uptake from sea water by a marine bacterium.
The mechanism of the process of calcium-binding by cells is the subject of this study, and the complex formation by ammonia and Ca, coupled with the increase in pH, favors binding of calcium over that of magnesium by the cells.
Photolithotropic and chemoorganotrophic activity of bacteria and algae as related to beachrock formation and degradation (gulf of Aqaba, Sinai)
Beachrock formation and degradation along the shores of the Gulf of Aqaba (Sinai) were studied in the field and at the laboratory. Different types of beachrock were found, including laminated rocks.

Scanning Electron Microscopy of Clays and Clay Minerals
The scanning electron microscope (SEM) proves to be ideally suited for studying the configuration, texture, and fabric of clay samples. Growth mechanics of crystalline units — interpenetration and
Numerical Taxonomy of Moderately Halophilic Gram-negative Bacteria from Hypersaline Soils
The bacteria found in these environments are not related to those from hypersaline waters or normal soils, and the high G + C composition of a representative strain of this phenon suggests that it may represent a new taxon.
