      The Biology of Stromatolites A stromatolite is a lithifying organo-sedimentary structure formed by the baffling, trapping and precipitation of particles by communities such as bacteria and algae to result in a layered rock-like structure (dupraz & wisscher.T., ). Biogenically produced by colonies of photosynthesizing cyanobacteria, this bacteria limnits the attack of of predatoors and. Stromatolites are some of the more puzzling fossils found throughout Earth’s rock record. They are fairly common in the oldest known sedimentary rocks, but living stromatolites only occur in rare isolated places in the world today. Only special conditions seem to allow these organisms to flourish, often involving unusual water chemistry.

These structures are usually characterized by thin, alternating light and dark layers that may be flat, hummocky, or dome-shaped. The alternating layers are largely. Most stromatolites do not preserve microbial body fossils; rather, they are trace fossils that record ecology on the macroscale and ethology on the microscale.

The study of stromatolites and other microbial structures would benefit from an ichnologic view aimed at deducing behavioral evidence, facies dependency, and biostratigraphy. Stromatolites or stromatoliths are layered mounds, columns, and sheet-like sedimentary rocks that were originally formed by the growth of layer upon layer of cyanobacteria, a single-celled photosynthesizing microbe.

Fossilized stromatolites provide records of ancient life on Earth. Lichen stromatolites are a proposed mechanism of formation of some kinds of layered rock structure that.

Stromatolite is the name given to a rock formation that is composed of the fossilized remains of a micro organism know as cyanobacteria, which is also called blue green algae, (although not strictly an algae).

Stromatolites are characteriszed by layers of banding or swirls caused by the trapping, binding and cementation of sedimentary grains by. This should be the seed for further books analyzing and illus­ trating the paleoecology, the niche and the features of Phanerozoic stromatolites, namely throughout the Mesozoic and the Paleozoic, where the data are still scarce; this will lead to naturalistic views on the evolutionary features of Post Riphean stromes, and will sharpen tools to.chronology and paleohydrology of late quaternary high lake levels in the manyara basin (tanzania) from isotopic data (18o,13c, 14c, th/u) on fossil stromatolites.Stromatolites are the most intriguing geobiological structures of the entire earth history since the beginning of the fossil record in the Archaean.
