Microbialites and lipid biomarker from coral reefs off the volcanic islands Tahiti and Vanuatu and from the nonvolcanic sites Belize and the Maldives - Heindel, Katrin; Birgel, Daniel; Brunner, Benjamin; Thiel, Volker; Westphal, Hildegard; Gischler, Eberhard; Ziegenbalg, Simone B; Cabioch, Guy; Sjovall, Peter; Peckmann, Jörn Ludwig
The occurrence of microbialites in post-glacial coral reefs has been interpreted to reflect an ecosystem response to environmental change. The greater thickness of microbialites in reefs with a volcanic hinterland compared to thinner microbial crusts in reefs with a non-volcanic hinterland led to the suggestion that fertilization of the reefal environment by chemical weathering of volcanic rocks stimulated primary productivity and microbialite formation. Using a molecular and isotopic approach on reef-microbialites from Tahiti (Pacific Ocean), it was recently shown that sulfate-reducing bacteria favored the formation of microbial carbonates. To test if similar mechanisms induced microbialite formation in other reefs as...
