(Society for Sedimentary Geology, 2018-04-03)
Caves are important sites of fossil preservation, especially for Quaternary vertebrates. Taphonomic processes operating in caves are not well understood and have never been experimentally examined. This study focuses on ...
Effects of legacy metabolites from previous ecosystems on the environmental metabolomics of the brine of Lake Vida, East Antarctica
Lake Vida, located in a closed basin in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, East Antarctica, permanently encapsulates an interstitial anoxic, aphotic, cold (−13 °C), brine ecosystem within 27+ m of ice. Metabolically active, but ...
