Modern stromatolite microbial diversity in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming in the context of microbial alpha and beta diversity along Yellowstone geothermal outfalls.
To better understand the diversity of mechanisms for stromatolite morphogenesis as well as the diversity of microorganisms and microbial metabolisms associated with stromatolites it is imperative to describe the biological attributes of the full diversity of "living" stromatolite-like geobiological structures worldwide. It is of additional interest to describe geographically and geochemically comparable ecosystems but lacking stromatolites to stromatolite-forming environments to unravel the geochemical and microbiological aspects of stromatolite morphogenesis. Here we present a living ...
