In situ silicification of an Icelandic hot spring microbial mat: implications for microfossil formation / S. Schultze-Lam, F.G. Ferris, K.O. Konhauser, R.G. Wiese.

Title: In situ silicification of an Icelandic hot spring microbial mat: implications for microfossil formation / S. Schultze-Lam, F.G. Ferris, K.O. Konhauser, R.G. Wiese.
Author(s): Schultze-Lam, S.
Ferris, F. G.

Wiese, R. G.
Date: 1995.
In: Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences. (1995.), Vol. 32(12) (1995)
Abstract: Transmission electron microscopy and energy-dispersive x-ray analysis revealed that filamentous phototropic bacteria resembling Chloroflexus auranticus underwent rapid silicification in Icelandic hot spring microbial mat. Mineralization occurred both extracellularly and within cytoplasm. Exceptional preservation of bacterial sheaths is due to presence of distinct mineral nucleation sites. Resulting silica casts are very like microfossil remains.
