Microbial mats
Colin Murrell (UEA)

Microbial mats of sulfur oxidizing bacteria growing on a small pond within a cave in the Frasassi Cave system in Italy. These are remarkably resilient bacteria, found in extreme environments. Researchers from ELSA on the Norwich Research Park have been studying the ecology of these types of chemoautotrophic microbes in similar cave systems.
