TitleMicrobial iron oxidation in the Arctic tundra and the implications for biogeochemical cycling.
Study TypeOther
Abstract The role that neutrophilic iron-oxidizing bacteria play in the Arctic tundra is unknown. This study surveyed chemosynthetic iron-oxidizing microbial mat communities on the North Slope of Alaska, near Toolik Field Station (TFS) at Toolik Lake (68.63N-149.60W). Microbial iron mats were common in subme .. [more]
