What do the stable isotopes of oxygen tell you about microbial metabolism in the authigenic crystals in the fractures?
Aside from isotopic signatures, do you have other evidence to suggest active methanogenic communities?
Very interesting research! Did you test what kinds of clay minerals were formed in association with the fungi in fractures?
Hi, very interesting talk. I wanted to clarify something. Are you proposing that in the slide where you discuss pyrite, fungi may be 'competing' with methanotrophs (and in fact 'eating them'!) to act as an alternative electron donor source for sulfate reducing communities?
