Abstract A common feature of microbial colonisation in deserts is biological soil crusts, and these comprise a complex community dominated by cyanobacteria. Rock substrates, particularly sandstone, are also colonised by microbial communities. These are separated by bare sandy soil that also supports microbi .. [more]
