This book provides information about microbial mats, from early fossils to modern mats located in marine and terrestrial environments. Microbial mats – layered biofilms containing different types of cells – are most complex systems in which representatives of . Microbial mats are benthic communities of a variety of microorganisms. Their investigation requires multidisciplinary studies and close cooperation between microbiologists, biogeochemists, and geologists. Reported here are recent advances in the study of structure, development and ecological relationships. Microbial mats are benthic communities of a variety of microorganisms. Their investigation requires multidisciplinary studies and close cooperation between microbiologists, biogeochemists, and ed here are recent advances . Microbial mats can be considered a specialized type of biofilm. They are an extreme example of an interfacial aquatic habitat in which many microbial groups are laterally tightly compressed into a thin mat of biological activity. While biofilms are typically one to several cell layers thick, microbial mats range from several millimeters to a centimeter thick, and are vertically stratified .

and microbial mats many times (Krumbein, ). Today, the importance of microbial life and microbial mats for multiple aspects of Earth processes is undisputed, and a billion year fossil record affirms that these oldest known ecosystems are also crucial for understanding Earth history (Margulis and Dolan, ). Microbial Mat: A Microbial Mat is a place where several different types of microorganisms (microbes, or tiny single-celled animals) live together in a community. The mat is a tiny, multi-layered community where each microbe produces somethingFile Size: KB. Microbial mats are often considered to be modern day analogs of ancient organo-sedimentary structures such as microbialites and stromatolites, and the Author: Gisela Gerdes.
