Abstract

Reported herein are the results of a combined field observation and microscopy study focusing on the connection between microrelief of the substrate, colonies of lithobiotic micro-organisms (in particular the lichen Xanthoria parietina) and microstructures of putative bacterial origin. A model is proposed, firstly indicating early-stage biochemical weathering, followed by biophysical weathering
