Description:

This is a ScienceDaily article about the effect of microbes on sedimentary rock formation. It covers the process of calcium carbonate crystalization, the effect of microbes on that process, and how the interaction can be used to improve dating of sedimentary rocks and identify places/times when microbial life may have been present in the past. This article is geared for the general public and would be appropriate for high school or higher level students.
