Very few ancient stromatolites contain fossilized microbes.While features of some stromatolites are suggestive of biological activity, others possess features that are more consistent with abiotic (non-biological) precipitation.-Food: L&P Catering will be there with the bomb diggity (food). Light beers are 1 ticket and specialty/dark beer are 2 tickets. Menu subject to many changes and exponential greatness. Overflow parking is in the neighboring parking lot..
Lichen stromatolites are a proposed mechanism of formation of some kinds of layered rock structure that are formed above water, where rock meets air, by repeated colonization of the rock by endolithic lichens. Stromatolites occur widely in the fossil record of the Precambrian, but are rare today.Look forward to one-time events as well as weekly specials!Dinner at the Depot | Depot Park| pm – pm “Dinner at the Depot” takes place in downtown Kennesaw every Monday evening (weather permitting) May through October.Time lapse photography of modern microbial mat formation in a laboratory setting gives some revealing clues to the behavior of cyanobacteria in stromatolites. (2015) found that cyanobacteria exposed to localized beams of light moved towards the light, or expressed phototaxis, and increased their photosynthetic yield, which is necessary for survival.In both light and dark conditions, the cyanobacteria form clumps that then expand outwards, with individual members remaining connected to the colony via long tendrils.
